6 Healthy Ways to Use Cauliflower in Recipes


These days many people, and especially people with Celiac disease, are looking for an alternative to the traditional wheat-heavy carbohydrate. Thankfully, creative food people have discovered that one versatile vegetable, cauliflower, can fill the role just fine.

In fact, there are many ways to use cauliflower as a substitute for wheat-based carbs. The benefit: you can enjoy your favorite meals without worrying quite so much about fat or calories. So, how exactly can you use cauliflower in your recipes?

 

1. Cauliflower Bagels

There’s nothing quite like a soft, warm, and dense bagel to start your morning. Bagels, and especially “everything” bagels, are a great source of protein and fat, making them an excellent breakfast food.

But there’s a whole lot of wheat-heavy carbohydrates in each and every bagel. Using cauliflower as your base helps you avoid those dangerous carbs. Pair your cauliflower bagel with avocado and turkey slices to get your healthy fat and protein.
