14 Creative Vegan Cauliflower Recipes
As a kid, cauliflower was one of the many vegetables that I seriously couldn't stand unless it was drenched in some kind of processed cheese sauce. Even as an adult I wouldn't touch it - until I went vegan and chose to broaden my horizons. Now, it's one of my favorite foods, especially when I want to make "lighter" dinners.
Turns out, there is SO MUCH you can do with cauliflower other than steaming it. Below are recipes for cauliflower tacos, cauliflower burgers, cauliflower mac & cheese and alfredo, cauliflower hash browns...even cauliflower ICE CREAM CAKE. WHAT. I KNOW. IT'S INSANITY.
To the recipes!
This whole roasted cauliflower is one of my all-time favorite dinners - it tastes like Thanksgiving, feeds a crowd, or makes leftovers for lunch the next day.
Healthy-but-delicious vegan tacos! Stuffed with breaded cauliflower and a zesty chili-lime cabbage slaw that is full of flavor.
A low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes - but definitely not lacking in flavor - this mashed cauliflower recipe is an easy, healthy side dish! Don't get me wrong, mashed potatoes are like my best friend, but mashed cauliflower is also right up there.
Low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie soup! You can have a couple bowls, or 3, without feeling any guilt. I love to make this soup during the holiday season for the day that follows those big-dinner-plus-dessert evenings.
