A scan of the beautiful food photos on Pinterest and other foodie blogs shows a (surprising?) resurgence in love for vitamin C-rich cauliflower. Once languishing untouched on veggie trays or doused into submission by quantities of ranch dressing, cauliflower is making serious strides as the new “it” food. Watch out, kale!
Cauliflower is replacing pasta in delicious faux mac and cheese recipes, roasted with exotic spices as a pizza topping, grated into an imitation pizza dough or mashed with truffle oil as an almost-guilt free and nutritious side dish. And if you’re looking to add a bit of edge to your meal, purple cauliflower can make for a truly rockin’ cauliflower dish!
For a little more veggie inspiration from some of our favorite foodies, check out Best Food Facts’ Pinterest page for some innovative takes on cauliflower such as Cauliflower Tater Tots, Mushroom Lasagna Rollups in Creamy Gorgonzola Cauliflower Sauce or Honey Roasted Cauliflower with Pine Nuts and Crispy Sage. You won’t be sorry!
