1. Crunchy cauliflower pasta – a simple weekday meal finished with crispy bread crumbs and toasted hazelnuts. 

2. Cauliflower gnocchi – ditch the traditional potatoes and use cauliflower puree to make the dough instead. 

3. Cauliflower pizza with mushrooms –  a low carb dream come true. No flour or wheat in this baby.

4. Cauliflower “couscous” – the texture of real couscous. Try it!

5. Peanut butter crumbed cauliflower – a recipe for the adventurous or curious. Cauliflower pieces fried in a creamy peanut butter batter! Flavour fest of note.

6. Bangers and cauliflower mash -  this is the homey and comforting one. Not as adventurous, but oh so good.
