    Cauliflower & potato soup (add Stilton if you like it)? Cut up small and add to stir-fries? Maybe you can pickle it?

    The ability of skinny old ladies to carry huge loads is phenomenal. An ant can carry one hundred times its own weight, but there is no known limit to the lifting power of the average tiny eighty-year-old Spanish peasant grandmother.

    If you can't eat it all soon, then it freezes well IF you blanch it first. I've done this in the past if I've got a couple of caulis at a good price.

    When you say blanch, do you mean simmer it? For how long? Do you let it cool afterwards or douse it in cold water? Sorry if Im being dim!

    Most things you just boil for about a minute then dip straight into cold water. I've linked to a thread about freezing vegetables that has plenty of information that will help you:-

    makes great veg curry mixed with carrots and green beans - which, of course, assumes you have those in the house as well

    Cauliflower Pakora
    2 pounds Cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
    1/4 cup Yoghurt (thick)
    1 cup Chickpea Flour (Besan)
    1/4 tsp Baking Powder
    1/2 tsp cumin seed
    1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder
    1/4 cup Water
    Salt to taste
    Oil to deep fry
    In a bowl mix all the ingredients except cauliflower pieces. The batter must have the same consistency as that of a cake. Dip cauliflower pieces in the batter such that they are completely covered with the batter. In a wok heat oil on medium and when oil is hot add the batter covered cauliflower pieces. Fry until this batch is about half done (just about when the colour of the batter starts to change) and remove from heat and keep aside. Do the same for all the batches. In the end take the first batch and refry them until they turn brown. Repeat for the other batches.
    Goes well with ketchup.

    Cauliflower recipes please
    Morning all,

    Need to use my cauliflower today. Anyone got any different ideas of what to do with it, other than cauliflower cheese?? Any suggestions greatly received.

    Fry some onions and bacon pieces in a pan add some tomatoes and mushrooms and anythink else you might fancy,place in the bottom of cassarole dish.
    Partly cook the cauliflower,drain and place on the mixture.
    now add some cheese sauce or grated cheese on top and finish in oven.can finish with a little parmasan cheese.
    omit the bacon if veggie.
    Makes a light lunch or can be used as the veg part of a meal.

    Cauliflower can be lovely in dry curry recipes. Madhur Jaffrey's cookbooks normally have a few good cauliflower recipes. My favourite cauliflower recipe of hers is cauliflower with cumin and fennel seeds. It's very simple and tastes great.

    Or you could use it in a soup?

    There are some cauliflower recipes on the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/apps/ifl/food/showrecord?templatestyle=text&config=ingredientnam e&page=1&pagesize=15&Id=219

    Cauliflower - Ideas Needed On How To Cook It Today!
    I have to make space in my fridge and so for our evening meal we are having leftovers - spare ribs in a BBQ sauce (in the slow cooker as I write - never tried them this way before, hope it works!) and egg fried rice. However, I have a cauli that I need to use up and I have plenty of HM soup so that's not an option. I would like to serve it as the veg but can't think of a way to cook it that would work with the other things I'm having. I thought I would tap your collective wisdom for ideas. :confused:

    Any help gratefully received!

    Could you just freeze it and use another day, or make a cauliflower cheese and reheat it tomorrow for tea? You're right, it doesn't really go with the spare ribs and egg fried rice.
