Roast it and you'll never do it any other way. Toss with just a bit of olive oil, salt and roast @400* for 10-15 minutes until just a bit brown on the edges. Same for broccoli, green beans, asparagus. It is absolutely fantastic.

Our family's favorite is similar to robo's:

Blanch cauliflower florets quickly in boiling water, drain.
Dip florets in butter, and toss in equal parts seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, then bake 350 20 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly.

Sprinkle it with some curry powder and then steam it for eight minutes. You will be amazed how good that is.

Indian-style cauliflower is my favorite.

Cauliflower And Potatoes In A Spicy Curry Sauce
===============================================
1 small head of cauliflower
3 russett potatoes
1/2 cup oil
1 small onion chopped
1 clove of garlic minced
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon cumin powder
2 tablespoons ground coriander
1/4 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 to 2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 cup finely chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned)
2 to 3 cups of chicken broth
Fresh chopped coriander (Same as cilantro)
. Break cauliflower into about 1 1/2 inch pieces. Peel the potatoes and cut
into 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces

Heat the oil over medium heat and when hot add the onions and saute until
golden, add garlic and cumin seeds. Cook for a minute or two. Do not burn.
Add the rest of the spices. Stir and add the potatoes and the cauliflower.
Toss with the spices and cook for a few minutes and then add the grated
ginger, tomatoes and chicken broth. Cover and simmer until the vegetables
are tender. Turn off heat and add chopped coriander (cilantro leaves)

Here's another good one:

MASHED SOUR CREAM CAULIFLOWER

2 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower
(I use frozen, cooked until tender, in the microwave)
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 green onions, finely chopped
3-6 slices cooked crumpled bacon
salt and pepper
4 servings
35 minutes 15 mins prep
1.
Pre-heat oven to 350.
2.
Chop cooked cauliflower into very small piecesand cook in the microwave until tender. .
3.
Mix sour cream, 1/2 of the green onions, 1/2 of the cheese, 1/2 of the bacon, and salt and pepper to taste in medium bowl.
4.
Stir in the drained cauliflower.
5.
Place in medium baking dish and sprinkle remaining cheese and bacon on top.
6.
Bake for 20 minutes.
7.
Sprinkle the remaining green onions on top just before serving.

Have you ever had it grilled? I know it sounds strange but it really brings the flavour out and tastes amazing.
Simply slice into LARGE slices, brush with a bit of oil, season with salt and pepper and grill until there are grill marks. Serve as is or with a bit of garlic butter and chives - really yummy!


Wow!

Many thanks for the suggestions. Very welcome. I’ll try your ideas as soon as possible.

I often roast carrots so roasting cauliflower is well worth a try.

And the other recipes sound great too. I can't wait to try those out too.

Many thanks.

My very favorite way to eat cauliflower is deep fried in tempura batter but then that goes for just about any food!
