Eat more vegetables. That's what they say, and that's easy to do when the veggie is cauliflower. This versatile veggie is a great replacement for rice, cheese and even meat. Yes, meat.
The best part? It also cuts down on cook time. Using cauliflower in this way means just shredding it in the food processor and it's ready to go! Here are a few dishes to get you started, but really, the sky is the limit!
1. Tabbouleh Salad
Grain-free eating is easy-breezy when you add cauliflower to the mix. What I love about this Tabbouleh Salad is not only do I get more veggies in my diet, it's beautiful to look at.
2. Cauliflower Waffles
Start the day right with these Cauliflower Waffles. You'll never see the veggies coming! Plus you can also hack them and turn them into savory waffles.
3. Fried "Rice" Balls
4. Vegan Sloppy Joes
5. Cheese Sauce
Cauliflower not only replaces meat, it also replaces dairy. You can make a wonderful Cheese Sauce from it, like with this Cheesy Fettuccine recipe.
6. Pasta-Free Lasagna
Here's a Pasta-Free Lasagna recipe that even Garfield would approve of. It's bursting with veggies and looks a lot lighter than the usual casserole.
7. Shepherd's Pie
With winter around the corner, here is a great Shepherd's Pie recipe that not only sneaks more cauliflower into your diet but is easy to make ahead. I suspect it freezes well, too.
8. Potayto. potahto.
9. Steak, but not really
Steak ... it's what's for dinner. But not really. These "steaks" are, you guessed it, cauliflower. Easy to make and way healthy alternative to red meat.
10. Eat the rainbow
This colorful salad almost looks like a fruit salad but nope, it is cauliflower. It's easy to eat your colors this way.
