It may seem like a boring, ordinary veggie, but cauliflower has extraordinary flavor and it’s packed with nutrients – go snatch some up at your farmers market this week.
In the same botanical family as cabbage, bok choy and broccoli, cauliflower is the “red-headed step-child” of the cruciferous group. There is more to this underappreciated veggie than meets the eye.
You've had it roasted, or maybe you've whipped it into soup. But cauliflower turns out to be capable of much more. Here are five surprising recipes.
Now, this is a kind of steak that we crave come Meatless Monday.
No need to keep an eye on this risotto. Just add rice, wine and broth to sautéed garlic and onions, and let the oven work its magic for 15 quick minutes.
Get the recipe for Food Network's Bobby Flay's Cauliflower-Goat Cheese Gratin, a crowd-pleasing dish ideal for Meatless Monday and holiday entertaining.
