CauliflowerCauliflower has been the talk of the town from celebrity chefs such as Rachel Ray and Jamie Oliver to companies such as Kraft adding it to their macaroni & cheese dishes. Cauliflower is the latest and greatest way to put vegetables into your kids’ meals in a kid-friendly, kid-approved manner.

Here are some simple tips to add the fiber-filled (3.5 grams of fiber per 1 cup) cauliflower into your life and get your kids their Vitamin C & E:

  • Mash up cauliflower just like mashed potatoes! You can even mix the 2 together for a double whammy of both your starchy vegetable mixed with your non-starchy vegetable in 1 dish. Click here to go to our Cauliflower Mash recipe.  Fish_Cauliflower_Roast_Potatoes
  • Here’s a photo of our Cauliflower Mash with some roasted sweet potatoes & grilled Tilapia.
  • Cut up some raw cauliflower and use that to dip into your hummus or ranch dip instead of the same-old carrot. Click here to go to our Hummus or Ranch Dip recipes.
  • Spray the cauliflower with some oil, add salt & pepper. Roast the cauliflower in the oven at 400° Bake for about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with some grated parmesan cheese and enjoy.
  • Cauliflower in Pasta Sauce is another way to add in those veggies!
  • Add the cauliflower to any soup. Cauliflower in chicken soup is divine!
  • Try treating cauliflower like potatoes. You can cook the cauliflower like you’d cook the potato and add the same fixins to it. Deee-licious!

    Although not a big fan of cauliflower, I do appreciate it in soups. However, I haven’t tasted mashed cauliflower or as a component of mashed potatoes. I’ll ask that we try it in our household. Thanks for the ingenious way to get our daily requirement of vegetables.

      Thanks! Cauliflower is one of those veggies that can be “liked” when “hidden” in many types of dishes. Hope you enjoy the mash!
