9 Fun Ways to Use Cauliflower

Here's nine fun ways to use cauliflower instead of bread, rice and potatoes in your low carb diet. Down below, I have links to my other posts with cauliflower as a substitute.

Watch this video to get inspired.

So Why Does Cauliflower Work Well

I think it comes down to the texture and moisture level. You can chop it fine and it absorbs flavors like rice. And you can get it to roast nicely without tasting bitter, and that's why it can replace things like pizza crust.

What Are Some Other Fun Ways to Use Cauliflower

I've already written some good posts:

Skinny Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Buffalo Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Steaks

Make Farmer's Casserole Lighter

Shepherd's Pie with Tater Tot Topping (you can use the recipe for the Cauliflower Parmesan Tots in this)

But Will I Like It?

That's the question of the ages, right? You don't want to go into this thinking “Well, I'll learn to like it.” I did that with eggs, and I still have inner resistance when I go to make my veggie scrambles in the morning. I tell myself I'm eating cheesy veggies.

So some of you will love the cauliflower substitute and some of you will never like it. And that's OK. I will say I've tried the frozen cauliflower tots and they're not a perfect substitute when you're craving Ore-Ida. But they're a good side, and they go well on top of my veggie scrambles.

I do love cauliflower in place of rice. I love mashed cauliflower in place of potatoes (or in addition to…)

All I can recommend is try it out. Add it in. Substitute completely. Find what works for you as you move towards incorporating more vegetables in your diet.
