I've got a cauliflower lurking in the fridge, has anyone got a recipe they can recommend? I fancy doing something a bit more adventurous than basic cauliflower cheese, was thinking maybe an Indian flavour, maybe roasting it?
Many thanks

I like buffalo cauliflower 'wings'

Put it in a plastic bag and add a good swoosh (technical term) of olive oil, add a shake of ground cumin and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Add to this a thickly sliced onion or two and shake it all together to get it coated in the oil and seasonings.

Roast in a hot oven till nicely charred - around 20-30 minutes.

My mum used to do cauliflower with roasted tomatoes and onions on top, with a good sprinkle of pepper. (A bit of parmesan on top too if you fancy it).

Also, as a side dish to a curry, I can recommend cauliflower, sweet potato, onion and chickpeas - heat some oil with turmeric, whole coriander seeds and whole cumin seeds in the oven, and roast the whole lot for about 40 minutes.

These all sound delicious, thank you!

I chop it into florets toss in olive oil salt and pepper and roast it until it’s quite crispy round the edges.
Then mix it into an Alfredo sauce - butter, garlic, cream and Parmesan (I know Parmesan isn’t vegetarian but you could sub it out for a vegetarian hard cheese).
I have crispy Parma ham mixed in too but you could swap for sautéed mushrooms or something.

Try googling prashads cauliflower and pea curry - this one. A staple in my house

Cauliflower and chickpea curry, tomato base with coconut milk or creamed.

Roast florets with a bulb of garlic (slice to off garlic, drizzle with olive oil wrap in foil) and some thyme. Fry off a finely chopped onion. Add some veg stock. When cauliflower is roasted add it to the stock, squeeze in the garlic, some until cauliflower is falling apart. Blitz. Yum.

Nit a meal but have you had cauliflower rice with a veggie curry? It freezes well too before cooking

This is gorgeous

I LOVE roast cauliflower! It's goes all gooey and delicious. I pop it in a roasting dish with some garlic cloves, cashews and broad beans! Bit of oil and lemon so the beans don't dry out, roast until the cauli is cooked.

Cauliflower and paneer curry. I think it's on BBC Good Food. I cheat though and use a Sharwood jar!

Cauliflower pasta

We do this, which is delicious:

Although I admit is do use my own cheese sauce recipe, which has a bit lot more cheese. And I put a breadcrumb topping on. So really, the original recipe is more of an inspiration than actual instructionssmile

We use this to use up odds and sods from the fridge drawer. Can add frozen peas, spinach any sort of veg really

Curry is nice but I love the “buffalo wings” I’m not veg or vegan so I serve them with blue cheese mayo

Assuming you’ve eaten it by now, but next time the turmeric cauliflower recipe here is amazing!
