Discover 60 diverse and exciting ways with the mighty but humble cauliflower, from fresh and rustic to elegant and richly spiced, is there anything this wonder-vegetable can’t do?
It’s the unassuming ingredient that has become a force to be reckoned with. Whether roasted, smashed, whipped, pickled, or braised, each cooking method gives it a new dimension of flavor, and these 60 recipes show off the myriad ways cauliflower can be enjoyed. A master of disguise, it can be a great undetected base and substitute for less nutritious carbs, or it can take on other flavors and quite easily star as the main event itself. As well as being utterly delicious, cauliflower is also a super-healthy ingredient—a good source of fibre, omega-3s, B vitamins, and minerals.
