Why is cauliflower so magical? One word: versatility. While kale has a very distinct flavor profile, cauliflower is like a nutrition-packed blank canvas, just waiting for your kitchen creativity to transform it into something delicious. We’ve been embracing cauliflower here in the Test Kitchen, and we’ve come up with a variety of ways to prepare it:

 

As a Steak – Grilled Cauliflower Steak with Cheese

 

Grilled – Italian Grilled Cauliflower Packets

 

Soup – Roasted Cauliflower and Fennel Soup

 

Mashed “Potatoes”- Herbed Mashed Cauliflower

 

Roasted – Roasted Cauliflower

 

Steamed and smothered in browned butter – Cauliflower with Golden Nutmeg Butter

Cauliflower is one trend I’m hoping is here to stay!
