Mmmm
I just had some.
I made sole over a bed of little cauliflowerets, julienned carrots and chopped haricots verts. And that lovely complement to cauliflower: Curry/cream.
When cauliflower is perfectly cooked, what a delight it is in the mouth. You know that bite, that touch of tooth?

Cauliflower makes GREAT "loaded faux baked potato soup"..........use lots and lots of onions, some fresh grated nutmeg, chicken or turkey broth (chicken is better if you can have it) and chopped turkey bacon - "blender it" when cauliflower is just tender - add or top with plain yogurt or sour cream, depending on your blood type. Add grated cheese for your type OR nutritional yeast.  Garnish with fresh chopped chives.

Guess I should add:  do NOT use potatoes.  Proper name of recipe would be Ultimate Creamy Cauliflower Soup.

I love it raw and eat it that way several times a week, but cooked...not so much.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I never liked it, which makes sense considering how it's an avoid for me. Pre-BTD, I used  to cook and mash cauliflower as a low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes. It was OK like that, but I never loved it.

I now have a large quantity of cauliflower from the CSA, and I'm trying to find ways to get my type B son to eat it. I think I'll steam or boil, then mash and serve with butter and cheddar cheese. I'll probably have to cook and freeze most of the cauliflower so it won't spoil before he can eat it.

Beautiful, Averno.  

My favorite way to eat it is to steam it on top of millet which has had it's prescribed salted water added and after the heat has just been turned on.  Put a tight fitting  lid on it.  When the millet is done so will the cauliflower be soft.

Mash these two together.  Add butter/ghee and more sea salt to taste and you'll have the best substitute for mashed potatoes I've ever eaten.

We actually love the cauliflower recipe from this website contributed by C Sharp! It is a curried cauliflower roasted with onions. I have to admit that I have never tried it with the Tofu but anyone I serve it to as a vegetable dish raves about it!

Curry when the menu calls for it. Otherwise roasted, simply drizzled with evoo, S&P, and a little garlic powder. The kiss of the fire brings out a lot of cauliflower's nutty flavor.

This really does look good.
Most of us think of breakfast grains as something to add sweetness to. Fruit, jam, etc.
But this dish says "Breakfast" to me, rather than "Mashed Potato Substitute"... Thanks!

Thanks for keeping me jazzed about the cauliflower in my fridge.
I just had it again for lunch...
It lends itself to so many and varied applications. I love that it can go delicate as well as autumnal/nutty.

Delicate - you could spin it out into a soufflé or mousse or a veloûté.
You could stuff ravioli with it or fold it into your gnocchi dough...

...a girl can dream, right?

Cauliflower Pizza Crust is really good.

http://Www.detoxinista.com/2012/01/the-secret-to-perfect-cauliflower-pizza-crust/

I made this a few times but my husband and I are both O's and noticed negative effects so we have moved onto spaghetti squash pizza crust.    But for those who can have cauliflower, enjoy! There are many other variations on the web.

Cauliflower is a great foil for cheese; I particularly like it with gruyère.

I frequently order cauliflower in Indian restaurants, where it's called "gobi".

"Aloo Gobi" is cauliflower with potatoes, but it usually has a tomato-based curry on it, though not necessarily.
"Gobi Gosht" (cauliflower with meat) was a favorite at a Pakistani place for awhile. The meat was Lamb. They cooked the cauliflower perfectly, but the quality of their meat went downhill, so I don't eat there anymore.

Indian vegetable dishes can feature two of my favorites - cauliflower and eggplant - as well as mustard greens "saag" and paneer and peppers (chilis or bell) ... Just dodge the chana (garbanzos), and tomatoes and Bs can do well. Tandoori lamb or salmon...

Indian restaurants often include cauliflower in their pakoras, but this deep-fried appetizer uses an Avoid flour and oil...

Indian/Pakistani cuisine is notably better cooked at home. Once you start preparing it at home, the difference in quality is alarmingly wide, and that's only very rarely not the case.

Got me to thinkin'

Cauliflower is so neutral in flavor, what if it were ground in a processor with a few pecans thrown in for good measure, buttered and sweetened, and used as a baked crust for a quark cheesecake (see quark thread hotlink to UK recipes)?

In another link we were looking for a sweet crumble for atop a baked something or other. Hmmm...
