If you love cauliflower, you’ll adore these ten delicious cauliflower recipes to try! While I am not a vegetarian person, I like trying new meat-free recipes. It helps me stretch my grocery budget and reduces my risk of cholesterol (this disease runs into my family). I don’t want have to fight cholesterol at such a young age so it’s best to prevent it and reduce any foods (such as red meat) that might increase it. Over the past few years, I increased my vegetable consumption and reduced my meat intake!
I try to pick seasonal vegetables. It’s hard sometimes as with our cold Canadian weather, I cannot find good vegetables at a reasonable price. So I choose budget friendly ones when I find them. Lately, cauliflower was on sale in my grocery store for $3 a piece. I missed eating this delicious vegetable during the winter. I could not buy it back then as it reached $8 a piece. There are so many ways to use this ingredient: as a salad, in a cheese tart, in a hearty soup. Let’s see what cauliflower recipe ideas I found!
