Another cauliflower dish on the blog! I bet you couldn’t have guessed this veggie was so versatile, could you?

This Creamy Cauliflower with cheese is a great side dish for your lunch or dinner. We love to have it with a beautiful steak and some fresh salad.

Roasted Cauliflower head | Cauliflower dishes #3

Posted on

This is a very simple, yet extremely delicious, recipe I’ve learned from an Israeli friend.
It’s basically a whole cauliflower head boiled until tender then roasted to get a beautiful golden colour and an amazing caramelised flavour. It seems this was created by an Israeli chef and since then it’s getting more and more popular. I totally understand why. 🙂

You can’t believe how delicious this thing is. Sometimes I need to control myself because I could eat the whole thing alone. I’m telling you, this is amazingly good!

Ingredients
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • Black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Fill a pot with water. This pot needs to be large enough to fit the whole cauliflower head in it. Also, make sure to pour just enough water to cover it.
  2. After the water starts boiling add in the salt and the whole cauliflower head.
  3. Boil it for a maximum of 10 minutes.
  4. Then, place a baking sheet on a tray and put the cauliflower head over it. Brush olive oil all over it and season with black pepper to taste.
  5. In a preheated oven at 200C (392F), bake it for approximately 30 minutes or until its surface becomes golden and brown.
  6. It’s done!

The best cauliflower pizza crust | Cauliflower dishes #2

Posted on

I can finally say I’ve mastered the technique to make the perfect cauliflower pizza crust. I’ve tried so many different ideas, changing a bit here and there, willing to get a version that doesn’t fall apart.

Today I’m proud to say I’ve achieved that! This is the BEST Cauliflower Pizza Crust EVER! This crust is perfect and simply has the best texture and flavour you can imagine. Put your fork on the side and embrace a delicious slice of pizza with your hands. 🙂

Ingredients
  • ½ head of cauliflower, shredded
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Add water and shredded cauliflower in a pan. Once it starts boiling, cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat and let it cool down.
  3. After the cauliflower has cooled enough – like lukewarm temperature, strain the liquid out placing it on a cheesecloth or a thin tea cloth, squeezing very well. Squeeze it until you can’t see any drops of water coming out of it. Nobody likes a soggy crust!
  4. Next, add the strained cauliflower together with the rest of the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix everything until well combined.
  5. Place a baking sheet on a pizza tray and pour the batter over it. Use a spoon or spatula to make it even and in a circular shape.
  6. Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 180C (356F).
  7. It’s done! You can top your crust with any filling you like, here I added tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, black olives, and cherry tomatoes. Pizza time! 🍕

Stir-fried cauliflower rice with eggs | Cauliflower dishes #1

Posted on

I totally love ❤️  cauliflower, such a versatile veggie. I cook with it all the time, always making something different and delicious. That’s why I’ve decided to create 4 videos with yum recipes using cauliflower, and this is the first one: Stir-fried cauliflower rice with eggs.

Stir-fried rice with eggs is one of my favourite Asian dishes, and although I eat regular rice on a few occasions, having a replacement for it would be amazing. Having said that, I’ve created this version using cauliflower rice instead, and the result is spot on!

This recipe serves two people and you can change a bit adding other veggies, or maybe season it differently. I usually add carrots and capsicum. YUM!

Ingredients
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups of cauliflower rice 
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1 cup of spring onions, finely chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Heat olive oil in a wok or large frying pan. Then add the riced cauliflower and stir-fry for about 4 minutes.
  2. Next, add peas and spring onions. Stir everything constantly around the pan, for about 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat together the eggs and sesame oil.
  4. Back to the pan, push all ingredients to the side of the pan and on the other side, pour the beaten egg mixture leaving it cook for about 2 minutes.
  5. Season everything with salt and black pepper to taste. Then, briskly swirl around the eggs to break them up and then toss with the rice. Stir-fry for another minute and it’s done!
  6. Serve right away.
