10 Ways with Cauliflower

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that always seems to be in the supermarket, but in fact it is as its finest in winter, so now that the colder months are upon us I thought I would celebrate this humble little veggie by sharing with you some of my favourite ways to cook it, from some of my favourite bloggers!

Cauliflower is a member of the brassica family (which includes vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage and Brussels sprouts) and is full of dietary fibre, folate and vitamin C, so it’s a handy vegetable to be eating more of this winter! It’s commonly steamed and served as a side dish, or turned into cauliflower cheese, but there is so much more that you can do with it! Here are some of my favourites, but I’d love to hear how you cook it too!

      Indeed it is! And that soup sounds delish. Yes please.

    This is going to sound absurd but I recently tried Cauliflower buffalo wings. There were quite a few versions of it around during American Football finals season and I thought what the hell. The recipe I used was essentially a spicy batter that you dipped the cauliflower bites in and then baked. I have no idea what a buffalo wing is or what they’re meant to taste like but these were nice. Crunchy and junk-food-ish in a pluto-pup/battered-sav at the football kind of way. But far less gross. I think you could also adjust the flavours and turn it into a (Western) Asian sweet and sour dish.
