I have a big bunch of cauliflower in my fridge and its getting old. Any new and interesting ways to use it without heading back to the grocery store? I generally either back with olive oil, lemon, and garlic or steam in a little bit of chicken broth and puree.

Break it up into small pieces and place on cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt, and cracked pepper. Bake for approximately 30 minutes at about 375, until brown on top. Sprinkle a little freshly grated parmesan and/or gruyere cheese on top, bake for one more minute to melt cheese, and then serve. Delicious! My family of 3 has been known to go through 2 heads of cauliflower in one sitting that way!

EXACTLY what she said. I could eat (and have eaten) a whole head of cauliflower made this way. I cook mine a bit longer and only use parm cheese. But it's so yummy.

Thats basically the way I do it with the olive oil, garlic, and lemon. I think that recipe calls for cheese also, but I generally leave it out with my good intentions of trying to eat healthy.

Roasting it til it gets brown makes it taste like french fries, almost! I LOOOOVE it.<br><br>
Cauliflower takes curry very well too.

I like to use make red lentil soup and add cauliflower. Just start with whatever base (I use vegetable and add some seasoning like curry, etc), boil lentils, carrots, cauliflower, onions, or whatever else until soft, then puree. It turns into a yummy winter soup!

While there are many veggies that over the years I've grown to like and enjoy, cauliflower is one that should be returned to the earth as quickly as possible in hopes it comes back in more tasty vegetable form.

I like to take cauliflower and put it into the black composter until it turns into a rich black soil to feed the vegetables I like.

i roast it, mash it up with potatoes, and then use it to fill pierogi, or samosas - depending on the seasonings i've used.

Made it the other day a little differently.<br><br>
I partially steamed the cauliflower and then added to a hot pan with some softened shallots and olive oil. Cook over medium high heat until cauliflower begins to brown. Add some sake (or you could use wine, or stock) and shake the pan, turning the cauliflower to coat in the process. When the liquid evaporates, mince 6 filets of anchovies and add to the middle of the pan with some of the oil from the anchovy tin. Mash with the back of a wooden spoon into a paste and toss cauliflower into the paste to spread around. Add a splash of sake (or whatever) and cook for a minute, stirring often to coat.<br><br>
Incredibly delicious!

Came across this thread yesterday and, coincidentally had a head that needed cooking. Generally not a caulifower fan at all, but this is flippin awesome! I used Fontina since I had some in the fridge.<br><br>
I'm the only vegetarian in my house. Usually I make a meat based main course and two veg sides that could stand alone as a main course and just eat those. Everyone leaned into this really hard - there were zero leftovers for lunch.

Boil, bake on pan, ...pahh!<img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif"> Keep it simple. Cut into bite size pieces, put in microwaveable bowl, nuke @2minutes, buttter and season to taste, eat. Voila! Excellent source of Vitamine C of all things.<br><br><a href="http://www.lifeplusvitamins.com/cauliflower-vegetables-nutrition.html" target="_blank">http://www.lifeplusvitamins.com/caul...nutrition.html</a>
