Cauliflower was reviled by many of us during childhood! The Paleo craze has many grown-ups now looking at the cruciferous vegetable in a new light, and cauliflower is enjoying its moment! Cauliflower rice and cauliflower mash are a terrific way to incorporate (sneaky) veggies in our diet - cauliflower rice made with coconut milk, and cauliflower mash with a little truffle…you’ll never know it’s good for you! But after the Thanksgiving holiday, my newest obsession was the discovery of cauliflower gratin!! - just as tasty as the potato version, with less starch.

Cauliflower is at its peak now, and is packed with phytonutrients, fiber, and vitamins C and K — throw in a little cheese (oh and some gluten free breadcrumbs-haha) and try one of these amazing recipes. I look forward to making a cauliflower gratin at Christmas…gratins are a dinner party host’s best friend, as you can make them ahead and bake as needed. Healthy, delicious, cheesy, and decadent. Yes, please!
