I roasted  a whole cauli last night for tea but we didn't end up using it..

How do I go about using it tonight for tea?

I don't have the recipe on me but some combo of lentils, cumin and lemon juice with the cauli broken into florets is very nice.

It would be great in curry, or as part of a veggie pie. I love roasted cauli, your dinner will be better than mine tonight, that's for sure (think I'll be stuck eating at work...).

When steamed we use leftover cauliflower as a salad with olive oil, apple cider vinegar and seasoning. My Italian Nonna's recipe. Quite yum. Don't know how roasted would go. The first thing that came to my mind for you op was a soup. So many nice cauliflower soups. original.gif

Stinkin' disgustingly hot!

But thankfully we have air con and could turn it down a degree or two and pretend it's cold out wink.gif

Thank you for the inspiration. I'm frantically googling soup and vege pie recipes to find one where I have most of the ingredients

Never tried cauliflower soup before, is it tasty?

That sounds really nice, I must try it.

Someone recently cooked a pizza with a cauliflower pizza base that was divine:

Cauliflower puree (with a little bit of cream and stock) is delicious with any sort of fish or seafood - maybe something on the barby?

Coming in late, but put in a food processor with cooked broccoli and mix in salt, pepper and either sour cream or greek yoghurt. Can eat warm or cold, as a side dish. Yum!

Because its the middle of summer!

For next time - cauliflower dip (tahini, roast cauliflower, some cumin, and lemon juice in a blender. Eat with pita bread or mountain bread.

I  would still totally eat cheesy cauli bake and I'm in north queensland!

With some grilled fish and a cold salad.

What about serving it with quartered soft boiled eggs, parsley, capers and toasted breadcrumbs or croutons.

And a simple dressing of lemon, EVOO, salt and pepper.

Cheers for all the fab ideas ladies!

I ended up cooking off some garlic and onions and throwing that and the cauli into the blender with some chicken stock. I would hazard a guess that we are the only people in north qld having soup for dinner lol.

Hubby was waffling over it so it must of been good.

I know I'm late, but similar to pp, we make cauliflower wraps in pita bread with fried cauliflower, and tahini sauce (tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt). It's delicious!
