Cauliflower is a great addition to your plate - rich in nutrients and antioxidants that help protect against cancer. It also contains fibre that helps with weight loss and a healthy digestive system. Here are 10 fun ways you can use this tasty vegetable.

2. Cauliflower Rice
Great for those who are looking for low-carb recipes, cauliflower rice has been on the scene for a long time now. Remove core and leaves, and using a cheese grater, grate until the cauliflower looks like... rice. Dry fry on a medium heat.
3. Roasted Cauliflower
Drizzle with olive oil and seasoning. Roast in an oven for 15 minutes. Add any spices you like, or why not sprinkle on parmesan cheese near to the end of cooking?

Go one step further than Cauli-cheese with the addition of leek. Check out this Cauliflower Cheese & Leek recipe from The Spruce Eats. Your roasts will never be the same again.

I'm a massive fan of this, if you haven't tried it before I highly recommend it as a worthy substitute for mashed potato. Chop up your cauliflower into little bits, steam, then blend with a bit of butter, salt and pepper.

One for the broccoli lovers, using the recipe above include equal amounts of the green stuff too! This is especially great for those handy mixed packs of broccoli and cauliflower you see in the supermarket.

Using a food processor, whizz up 4 cups of steamed cauliflower, 2 tablespoons of Tahini, 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and a sprinkle of cumin. Add more olive oil or cumin if necessary upon tasting. Salt and pepper. Done.
