We know, we know. Cauliflower sits right up there with Brussels sprouts, spinach and lima beans as a long-hated veggie. But hang on: These days when Paleo, Keto and other low-carb eating plans all but cut out bread, potatoes and rice, what’s a carbaholic to do? Here are some cauliflower recipes that’ll have you thinking you’re eating the real thing.
1 large head fresh cauliflower, green removed and head cut into 2-inch chunks
2 Tablespoons cream cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
¼ cup butter
Cook the cauliflower in boiling water until the pieces are fork-tender, about 6-8 minutes. Drain it and pat it as dry as you can. Put the hot cauliflower in a food processor with the remaining ingredients and gently mix until combined.
Take leftover faux-tatoes and form them into rough circles about 3 inches around. Grill the latkes in a nonstick pan until they’re browned, then serve with sour cream and applesauce.
