Call me crazy, but cauliflower is the cool cat of the cruciferous crew.
One of the most underrated, underused, yet utterly delicious vegetables, I am here to brainwash the hater and sway the skeptic. These deelish cauli-recipes will have you running to the market to buy an extra-large head, stat.
Cauliflower roasted with cumin coriander and almonds | Jamie Oliver
A seriously easy recipe, have a go at Jamie Oliver's Indian-ish take on cauliflower. Lemony, spicy, salty and delicious, it's a fantastic zingy accompaniment to your weekly roast!
Cumin-cauliflower fritters with lime yogurt sauce | Yotam Ottolenghi
Sourced from one of my favourite cookbooks right now - Ottolenghi: The Cookbook - these Middle-Eastern fritters are a real crowd pleaser. I mean, anything with a touch of spice, fried for a bit and then dipped in tangy yoghurt is glorious. If you happen to be passing through London, I suggest checking out their restaurant for a truly amazing dining experience…
Cauliflower and parmesan soup | Neil Perry
Neil Perry is an absolute god in the kitchen and this is a testament to his pure godliness. Think sautéed cauliflower florets blended with rich cream, parmesan and Dijon mustard. It's the absolute epitome of an indulgent winter warmer. If you're feeling a little bit lazy or don't have the time to make your own, pop down to BUZZ at Emporium for their cauliflower soup and crusty bread special.
Warm roast cauliflower, chickpea and quinoa salad | Gourmet Traveller
I think, between my Mother and I, we have made this glorious salad nearing 100 times since it came out in last year's November edition. This could be a slight over-exaggeration, but necessary to aid in your ability to understand the deliciousness of this dish.
Cauliflower mash with caramelised onion | The Healthy Chef
Love mashed potato but struggle to justify the carbs? Replace the starchy potato for a more than welcome substitute (in my books at least). Boil, season, add a dash of olive oil, or whatever tickles your fancy and get mashing!
I rest my case… Ode to the cauliflower!
