You really get a long of "bang for your buck", nutritiously speaking with cauliflower. Loaded with nutrients, but very low in calories, it is a great food item to include in your diet. I'm not too sure that a huge plate of plain cauliflower is that attractive to most people, though. So, here's a few recipes that do a great job of dressing up this versatile vegetable.

1. Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

2. Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
