I recently scored a huge mom victory. After years of trying, I finally came up with a cauliflower recipe that my kids actually liked. It was these cauliflower pancakes that opened their minds at last to one of my favorite vegetables.

Now I’m on the hunt for new ways to feature cauliflower in my meal plans. This collection of 40 healthy cauliflower recipes includes some really creative dishes. My fellow bloggers have used all sorts of different seasonings and cooking methods to highlight cauliflower.

Most of the dishes featured here are either gluten-free or easily adapted to be gluten-free. Many are also dairy-free and vegetarian. Click on the title below each image to see the full recipe.
