CAULIFLOWER MAC & CHEESE
This might be the ultimate way to squeeze more veggies into decadent comfort food. The “cheese” sauce in this healthy and decadent recipe is made from pureed cauliflower and cashew-based cream. (You could also use cheddar instead of the cashew cream!) Regardless of whether or not you go vegan, the inclusion of a whole head of cauliflower cuts down on calories and adds in an extra dose of Vitamin C and fiber. (One cup of the white florets contains 3g of fiber and 77% of the daily recommended value of vitamin C.) Get the Recipe: Jeanine / Love and Lemons
French fries and tater tots, step aside — cauliflower tots are taking over. Shape this simple mix of cooked chopped cauliflower, egg, onion, parsley, cheese and breadcrumbs into tot-like pieces, bake for about 16 minutes, and get popping! Plus, these crunchy snacks contain a healthy dose of protein (10 grams) in every eight-piece serving. Photo and Recipe: Gina Homolka / Skinnytaste

cauliflower crust calzone
Take the popular veggie pizza crust a step further with this cauliflower crust calzone recipe. Because what’s better than one layer of cauliflower crust? Two, of course! The calzone calls for a simple filling of mozzarella cheese and fresh tomato sauce, but you can fill the crust with whatever you like. I suggest fresh spinach, fresh tomato, shredded basil leaves and fresh buffalo mozzarella.
