    I LOVE cauliflower roasted with some butter. Super simple and ends up surprisingly complex in flavor!

    I love it! Bake it with olive oil, garlic and pepper.

    sautee it with chunks of garlic.

    steam it with butter.

    mash it like potatoes!

    I agree! I never much cared for cauliflower until I tried it that way. If you go very easy on the butter, it's low calorie, too.

    we always mash it with some butter and salt and pepper. sometimes sprinkle a bit of grated cheese. SO good and can easily take the place of potatoes/rice in a meal!

    next time i am for sure going to roast it. how hot and for how long?

    Roasted w/ butter like mentioned and then add a sprinkle of nutmeg.

    Served raw with cocktail sauce it's poor man's shrimp! Try it you will be very surprised.

    I like it raw...

    But one of the special dinners used to be cauliflower boiled, topped with roasted breadcrumbs and a white gravy to go with it. but mostly the butter roasted bread. Croutons or crumbs, what you have or prefer.

    My first thought was throw it out. Too strong of a flavor for me. I've had a few cauliflower dishes that I liked, but not many.

    Butter is good.

    A grad school recipe? Sprinkle it with seasoned bread crumbs (packaged are fine), pour on some browned butter and microwave for a bit.

    You'd be surprised how good, healthy and "real food" this turns out.

    Cauliflower bisque. I make it all the time. I use half/half but do not use the full amount and it makes it really thick. You can add some kind of fish if you want. I have used sauteed tilapia. Could put some lobster, shrimp or crab too.

    Soup! Olive oil, onions, garlic, chicken stock, cream, velveeta, nutmeg, cayenne, cauliflower, seasoned salt and pepper. It's easy and yummy!

    I had the BEST cauliflower in London this fall in a Chinese restaurant. I think it was roasted, but whatever, it was so light and addictive. I could have made a meal on it alone. Anyone have a recipe for this.

    I do love cauliflower -- it is a great vegetable to eat cooked or raw.

    Another vote for soup! I'm not a huge fan of cauliflower, but I actually really like it in this soup-

    I steam it until tender. Then toss it in a pan with butter, grated parmesan and Italian bread crumbs. Saute until the cheese is melted. Its yummy.

    I made cream of Cauliflower soup last night. Steam the cauliflower. Saute onion and garlic in butter. Add a couple tablespoons flour and cook until bubbly. Add some chicken stock and cook until thickened. Add the cauliflower and a can of evaporated milk. Let simmer for about 15 minutes thin with milk if necessary. It turned out really good.

    Kinda takes away from the healthiness of the cauliflower but I do love it when it's fried.
