Re: Help! Head of Cauliflower

I have heard of "ricing" cauliflower but have never done it myself.  I guess whatever you season it with will change the blandness fo the cauliflower.

I've heard this too, as a healthier alternative to rice or pasta.

I haven't tried it myself.

TY for everyone's reply! I knew you guys would give me your tried & true!

 

I did roast it w/ the bread crumbs & parm. It's all mine for supper later.

 

That recipe for roasting whole also seems good! TY, @Yardlie

 

Yes, I can just see my DH's expression if ever I rice cauliflower instead of his pasta on Sundays! Smiley Happy

Re: Help! Head of Cauliflower

@Harpa I have a Cauliflower recipe that I have made a few times over the years, now granted it is definitely not low calorie but it is delicious, and I have received rave reviews anytime I have served it or shared the recipe and they have made it for their families.

 

It is a cauliflower casserole with bacon, sour cream, cheese etc. etc. etc., I would be happy to dig it out for you if you would like, and FYI it heats up beautifully if you enjoy leftover's!

@RespectLife When I came up with the recipe I actually combined a couple of them and was reading the ingredients off to my husband and he gave me that "No Way LooK', he is a meat & potatoes man and this contained no meat how dare I insult him by serving him a vegetable dish, my DH lives for bacon so I added it on the off chance, and now HE requests this dish, LOL!

Re: Help! Head of Cauliflower

We either roast it in the oven or steam it in the microwave. When it's steamed in the microwave, the BF puts nacho cheese sauce over it. I think he buys the Tostitos brand in the snack isle. 

 

Recently saw a slow cooker recipe for cooking the entire head of cauliflower with some seasonings.
