Fried Cauliflower (Egyptian Style)

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

Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry

Rating: Unrated
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.

Scrambled Cauliflower - Low Carb

Rating: Unrated
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.

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.

Cauliflower Patties

This is a healthy and filling side dish for any meal.

Cauliflower and Potato Stir-Fry - East Indian Recipe

Rating: Unrated
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.

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.
