As a kid, cauliflower was one of the many vegetables that I seriously couldn’t stand unless it was drenched in some kind of salty cheese sauce. Even as an adult I wouldn’t touch it – until I went vegetarian, started eating more veggies, and broadened my horizons. Now, it’s one of my favorite foods.

Turns out, there is so much you can do with cauliflower other than steaming it. It’s one of the most versatile vegetables out there! Because its natural flavor is fairly mild, you can completely transform it with seasoning or sauce.

Below are recipes for cauliflower tacos, burgers, mac & cheese, alfredo, hash browns, and more! You might even see a surprise dessert in the mix.

Let’s get to the recipes!
