Cauliflower is not one of my husband's favorite vegetables, in fact, he doesn't care for it at all. He eats it (when I load it with butter), but it is certainly not on his favorite list... except when I make it like this. The old saying about the way to a man's heart being through his stomach...
Cauliflower is, without a doubt, the greatest low-carb vegetable ever. It's extremely versatile, and with only 4-5% of the energy coming from carbohydrates it even fits ketogenic cooking. What makes cauliflower so popular is that it has a similar texture to potatoes, but without all the carbs.
It's just a regular, humble, garden cauliflower, but there's something really exciting about seeing it come out of the oven whole. Think of this as an edible centrepiece to hack away at, cutting chunks off the main stem, throughout your meal.
Once the vegetable our moms would have to beg us to try ("just a bite!"), today, we can't get enough of cauliflower. It practically defines the word versatile: It's a great stand-in to help make comfort foods healthier, but still tastes delicious on its own.
When a recipe calls for bacon, I instinctively double the amount to cook, because in our household, just-cooked bacon sitting on the counter (even those waiting to be incorporated into a yet unfinished dish) is fair game to steal.
