Fried Cauliflower (Egyptian Style)

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
The smaller the florets the crispier and yummier! To get even crispier florets, add a couple of teaspoons cornmeal to the batter.

Crispy Vegetable Pakoras

Rating: 4.5 stars 110
These are very yummy, and if any of you have ever had Japanese tempura coated veggies, you'll love this recipe. It's similar, yet it is unique in it's taste. Serve with a chili sauce, mint yogurt sauce, or sweet and sour sauce. Try other vegetables for dipping, such as sweet potatoes, broccoli and asparagus.

Scrambled Cauliflower - Low Carb

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
I got this recipe and it wasn't low carb and included breadcrumbs instead of Parmesan cheese so you could form patties (like a latke). Since I'm living a low-carb lifestyle, I decided to adapt it, but the patties were less-than-desirable visually the taste wasn't that impressive. I had one completely fall apart on me in the pan so I just scrambled it up and viola; we had a new fave! You can add bacon and garlic as a yummy addition, if desired.

Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry

Rating: 4 stars 7
This healthy alternative to fried rice is made with frozen cauliflower rice. Cracking an egg into it while it cooks increases protein and we like it. You can also add shrimp, pork or chicken. This recipe looks like a lot but our family of 3 can finish it.

Cauliflower Side Dish

This recipe is easy and tasty. Even those who tell me they don't like veggies or cauliflower eat this one and love it.

Cauliflower and Potato Stir-Fry - East Indian Recipe

Rating: 5 stars 7
This is a quick and delicious recipe that goes well with white rice by itself, or with white rice and lentils. Its filling and doesn't require too much salt or oil. A drier version can be eaten with flat bread, naan, or pita. Reduce chili powder for a kid-friendly meal. Fast-cooking vegetables such as beans, peas and corn can be added for extra crunch and color. You can use white onion instead of the more pungent red if you prefer. If you find the vegetables catching bottom without being fully cooked, add half a cup of water and replace lid. Once cooked, remove lid and cook on very low till the water evaporates.

Perfect Cauliflower Fritters

Rating: 4 stars 19
This is one of mums recipe's that everyone just loves. It's versatile as you can add just about any vegetable. Perfect as an appetizer.

Gobi Manchurian

This is one of my favorite gobi (cauliflower) recipes, and available at many Indian restaurants. A spicy Asian dish that's sure to leave your family wanting more! Occasionally, I even love to bake the cauliflower to lower the calories. Keep in mind, baking will take away from the crispiness of fried cauliflower.

Grandma Nickie's Deep Fried Cauliflower

Rating: 4 stars 8
My Grandma Nickie used to make this 'treat' and we could never get enough. After many attempts, I've managed to copy her. Both my boys asked me to teach them to make it.
