5 comforting cauliflower dishes

Cauli-rice is not the only delicious creation the gorgeous cauliflower has to offer us. Just because it’s a vegetable doesn’t mean it can’t create a satisfying meal all on its own. Here are Hannah Lewry’s favourite ways to eat cauliflower during the chilly season.


Comforting cauliflower dishes - puree

If you’re looking for something satisfying and quick to prepare, this is a must. Jam-packed with flavour and ready in a matter of minutes, it’s a fantastic mid-week meal.

Comforting cauliflower dishes: croquettes
This is a fabulous recipe to make for friends as a snack before dinner. It’s best served hot out of the pan, but you can make them ahead of time and simply reheat the oven.

Comforting cauliflower dishes - tart
It might sound bizarre to add cauliflower to a tart but, trust me, you will be so happy you tried out this recipe. It’s perfect for a weekend brunch or picnic.

Comforting cauliflower dishes - whole roasted
I love making this dish, it’s super easy and all the hard work happens in the oven. It’s fantastic served as a main with lentils or a side dish at a braai. Or serve it with roast chicken or oxtail.
