Fall Fest: 6 Unexpected Cauliflower Dishes

Cauliflower constantly amazes me with its versatility. You can roast it until it becomes delicate, tender and slightly charred, and whatever spices are used become deeply aromatic; you can use the meaty florets to bring a hearty texture to salads or vegetarian chili; or you can blend cauliflower with cream until it lends a luscious consistency to soups and purees. And let’s not forget that in its humble, raw form, cauliflower’s crisp and crunchy texture makes it great for simply dipping. However you choose to cook (or not cook) your cauliflower, this snowy white vegetable gets a whole new appeal when it becomes the star of a dish.

Here are six recipes for creative cauliflower eating:

Get the Recipe: Cauliflower with Sweet Potatoes (pictured above)

This unlikely duo of cauliflower and sweet potatoes is pan-roasted with fresh ginger, coriander, cumin and yellow-hued turmeric.

Get the Recipe: Creamy Cauliflower and Parsnip Soup
Get your cauliflower fix from this soup, which gets its rich, velvety consistency from pureed cauliflower and rice.

Get the Recipe: Cauliflower and Arugula Salad
Make a salad worth being excited for: crisp bacon, pine nuts, and tender-roasted cauliflower make a wonderful, hearty topping.

Get the Recipe: Cauliflower, Chevre, and Onion Quiche
This quiche is enrobed in a buttery, rosemary-scented crust and is enriched with fresh chevre and textured cauliflower.

Get the Recipe: Hurry Curry Cauliflower
Try a pickle beyond the cucumber. Cauliflower is an excellent vegetable for pickling, as it will easily take on the flavors of aromatic spices and piquant vinegar.

Get the Recipe: Cauliflower Gratin
Cauliflower and cheese have been friends for quite some time, but in this anything-but-traditional gratin, cauliflower is tossed in a creamy Gruyere sauce and baked with toasty breadcrumbs until golden-brown and bubbly.
