Cauliflower is just about the most versatile ingredient out there. It feels like it can be almost anything. Where’s my recipe for cauliflower donuts? Or cauliflower sweet tarts? When that happens, I’ll officially be able to go sugar-free!! I kid.

However, I am always looking for more cauliflower recipes. I’ve been trying to keep most of my meals in the keto/paleo/Whole30 family lately and cauliflower helps. I made the Creamy Paleo Cauliflower Soup with Bacon last week and I am not lying when I say that it tastes like my mom’s billion calorie potato soup. Seriously, I could have at least once a week.

In my search for all things cauliflower, I did a lot of digging on Pinterest and what I realized the world needed was a roundup of the best cauliflower recipes! It’s a list of over 45 cauliflower recipes all in one place. The list includes everything cauliflower: healthy cauliflower recipes, cauliflower lunch recipes, cauliflower dinner recipes, cauliflower dips, cauliflower appetizers, cauliflower side dishes, all the recipes where cauliflower substitutes for carbs, and a few surprise recipes like cauliflower dessert!

All of the recipes are so different that you shouldn’t ever get sick of eating cauliflower!
