Boost your immune system with vitamin C before cold and flu season sets in by eating more cauliflower. A member of the cabbage family, cauliflower can be boiled, baked or sautéed, but for a well-browned exterior and a flavorful, moist interior, roasting is the way to go.

Start simple with Emeril’s Oven-Roasted Cauliflower With Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice. We bet even the biggest cauliflower-haters will think twice after sampling this quick yet flavorful dish.

Claire’s Roasted Cauliflower With Dates and Pine Nuts (pictured above) is a wonderful fall side for those willing to experiment with flavor. Roasting the cauliflower makes it slightly sweet and turns into an unexpected complement to the dates.

Try Guy’s Roasted and Pureed Cauliflower as a mashed-potato substitute. With only six ingredients, this side is an easy addition to any weeknight meal.

For a hearty, Italian take on this versatile fall vegetable, make Giada’s Roasted Cauliflower With Parmesan and Pancetta. The Parmesan and pancetta mixture makes for a creamy sauce that turns golden brown when breadcrumbs are sprinkled on top and baked.

Anne’s Roasted Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts and Jerusalem Artichokes should smell almost like popcorn when finished. Add just a dash of salt and chopped chives to let the earthy flavor of these root vegetables shine.
