More than I like to admit, I am a creature of habit in cooking. Most of the time, I return to favorite recipes. Breakfast is almost always oatmeal. And, at the market I buy the same kinds of produce every week.
During the fall, it is almost guaranteed that I have a head of cauliflower in my refrigerator. The larger heads can easily make two meals. Occasionally, I can find stands that charge by the head instead of by the pound. It’s these weeks that it feels like we’re eating all the roasted cauliflower recipes.

Also, one quick note about romanesco. This beautiful green fractal vegetable is often cozied up with the cauliflower. Romanesco has a slight resemblance to cauliflower. However, it is really it’s own brassicas that taste a bit more like broccoli. I’ll swap romanesco for cauliflower in things like salads and grain bowls.
Many meals. Many Flavors.
However, my favorite cauliflower combinations often include tossing cauliflower in flavorful sauces and pastes like harissa, romesco, and mole. Of course, there’s always the popular buffalo version too!
Beyond just playing around with flavors, cauliflower works for many different kinds of meals. Below are a few ways to use cauliflower for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
