Try it Spanish style: Cook one head, separated, until just tender; Drain,saving 1/4 cup of cooking water. Heat 1/3 cup olive oil & add 4 chopped garlic cloves. Remove from heat and add 1 T smoked paprika, 1 T white wine vinegar & pinch of cayenne + reserved water. Pour over cauliflower & serve immediately. It's my husbands favorite dish.

I'll send you one or two. I just typed partial recipes for you and my grandson decided to help and I lost all I typed. Soooo as soon as I can I'll do so again.

Your grandson sounds like my cat!

Thank you again for all the great ideas. Looks like my broccoli blues (and cauliflower) are heading to an end.

I love raw broccoli and cauliflower both in salads. We also steam both together and eat them with just salt, pepper and some of that no calorie spray-on butter substitute. Butter flavor popcorn salt is also good.

This is a great way to use cauliflower - it's fantastic! *(Note: I puree half the soup and leave the other half chunky. Also, I don't roast the cauliflower).

Lots of Indian dishes use cauliflower, such as Aloo Gobi, etc.

I like to mash cauliflower with potatoes, And I love both those veggies roasted, it brings out the natural sweetness in them...

Tried this the other night, was quite good.

Roast a head of garlic.
Mix the roasted garlic with a few tablespoons of soy sauce
mixed with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil.
Boil broccoli florets in salted water for 3 minutes, then drain.
Mix the florets with the sauce and serve immediately.
