Top 12 Cauliflower Recipes
Cauliflower, like its close relatives broccoli, kale, and cabbage, provides many nutrients and health-promoting compounds. And with only about 5 grams of carbohydrates in 1 cup, cauliflower is also an excellent choice for a low carb diet.
The best methods for cooking cauliflower include roasting, stir frying or sautéeing, lightly steaming, or microwaving. Cauliflower can be boiled, but that will reduce some of the nutritional benefits and can leave the florets mushy.
From soups and casseroles to roasted cauliflower and simple combinations, you're sure to find a recipe from among these favorites.
