What to make with Cauliflower?

Cauliflower // loveandlemons.com

I don’t know what exciting plans you all have this weekend, but I have a date with this head of cauliflower. This photo doesn’t accurately show just how big this thing is, but it is the Thanksgiving turkey of cauliflowers. It arrived in my Farmhouse Delivery a few days ago and I’m determined to use up the whole thing…

What do you like to make with cauliflower? Leave me and idea below… I’ll pick my favorite and feature it here next week…

Here are some cauliflower favorites I’ve made before:
Roasted Cauliflower & Hazelnut Salad 
Roasted Cauliflower with Rasins & Capers
Cauliflower Crust Pizzas, version 1 and version 2

    Haven’t seen anyone suggest cauliflower steaks so I will! Slice the head into 1″ thick slabs and marinate for a couple of hours in whatever flavors you feel like, I like either ponzu sauce or barbeque, then grill until tender/crisp over charcoal. So delicious.

    Cauliflower in all of its simple glory and in any recipe, just simply rocks! Great post!

  3. Martha Rose Shulman at The New York Times ran some good cauliflower recipes on January 8: “Sicilian Cauliflower and Black Olive Gratin,” “Cauliflower and Tuna Salad,” and “Tunisian Style Baked Cauliflower Frittata.” Try these.

    Well, growing up I only had it with Makloubeh, but just this past week I had a HUGE head of cauliflower and served it up with a mediterranean chicken meatloaf with roasted garlic hummus and roasted the cauliflower with lemon, garlic, herbs and garnished with parmesan. T’was a great meal! =)

    I know the whole “mashed cauliflower” thing was big awhile back, but I was late to the game with it. Instead of just steaming cauliflower and topping with butter + salt a few weeks back, I decided to stick it in the food processor with herbs, butter, garlic, and milk. My husband and I both loved it! I was kind of shocked. I don’t pretend they’re potatoes, because they’re definitely not, but it’s still really delicious. There are so many fun versions you could make…curry spice…smoked paprika…etc. It’s definitely not fancy, but really tasty!

    Well, I just recently made a cauliflower and leek soup with smoked pepper that was really amazing. 🙂 Or you could do roasted cauliflower tossed with pasta, wilted spinach, and super pungent olives and roasted red pepper!

      you read my mind because I made that pasta day before I posted this post 🙂

  9. When I have a lot of cauliflower I usually make Roasted Cauliflower soup or Cauliflower and Potato Curry. Can’t wait to see what you make of this!

    I recently tried a Paula Wolfert recipe from The Food of Morocco. Cauliflower with olives and preserved lemons. It had the perfect balance of briny and tang. Delicious!

    Mashed cauliflower (good substitute for potatoes), fritters…

    Roasted Cauliflower Hummus:
    Roast chopped fresh cauliflower in oven at 400 F for 40-45 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Let cool slightly. Puree in a food processor with 2 cloves of garlic, 1-2 T. tahini, salt and pepper, and fresh herbs (parsley, basil, oregano).
