Cauliflower : Low Carb Recipe Choices

The cauliflower is one of the most versatile foods in the low carbers recipe book. From cauliflower cheese to finely grated as a rice substitute or mash with butter and use as a topping for shepherds and fish pies etc. With minimal carb content and over three times the vitamin C as potatoes, a truly great food. There are many different recipes where cauliflower can be used, below you will find six recipe suggestions, if you should try them I hope you enjoy them.

You will find a variety of articles and recipe ideas within this blog. It is important to note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

That Parmesan crusted got the saliva flowing

Sue said...

Ooh I love cauliflower, and cheese, so that first recipe sounds perfect! I've saved that for later. Have a great week xx

Sandy said...

A vegetable I really never buy. Until recently the only way I had ever had it was with cheese sauce at home as a kid. Tasteless except for the cheese. Everyone used to boil the heck out of veggies so they really weren't good at all. Had them instead of potatoes recently at a restaurant. Quite good. Need to try and do something with them here at home.

Jo said...

I love cauliflower but my family do not, so we don't have it often. I really need to try those recipes which you mention for those who don't like cauliflower, perhaps I can change their minds.

sandy said...

all of these - especially the mac and cheese sounds like something I would love. thanks for the links.

My favorite is broken into flowerettes, drizzled with an olive oil and herb mixture and oven roasted. But I love it many different way.

I really, really like cauli (though I am the only member of the household who does). All the more for me.

Lynda said...

Oh I do love my versatile cauliflower! Tonight it's cauli mash with sausages and veg. Other nights we have the cauliflower rice or cauliflower cheese. It's such a great potato replacement that we don't miss potato much at all!

I am not real fond of cauliflower, but mixed with cheese it does make a good pizza crust :)
