I am eating curry cauliflower soup with tamarind quinoa as we speak!

I concur with all the cauliflower cheese suggestions.

I make a bastardised new farm cheese type sauce - make a roux, add cold water and/or soymilk slowly, about a half cup at a time, whisking until smooth before adding any more, until you get the consistency you want, then add nutritional yeast, lemon juice, a bit of stock (I dissolve this in hot water before adding), salt and pepper, and whatever else you think might taste good in it - I usually add some mustard and tahini. Pour this over parboiled cauliflower and bake until it starts to brown.

This recipe is delicious. I've done it with full size cauliflowers instead of the recommended baby caulis and it's worked fine. I never usually bother with the vinagrette.

I like it roasted tossed with chopped garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Or (this is where I start to sound weird)

boiled, then chopped and stirred in a pan with a mix of melted margarine and Marmite. Sprinkle with a teeny bit of salt.

Believe it or not, roasted cauliflower and chocolate is a really good pairing. Google chocolate cauliflower for recipes. I particularly like roasted cauliflower with mole spices.

Note: Don't google cauliflower mole. Just don't. You've been warned.

i vote for aloo gobi. i just put an entire head into a batch of kimchi that turned out very very rad. i also like it middle eastern style, roasted--even a little charred--with a lemon tahini sauce.

I've made a really great roasted cauliflower soup with a dash of truffle oil (I think a fatfreevegan recipe). I also make a lot of mashed cauliflower (like others have said, instead of mashed potatoes). steam cauliflower till really soft, put in processor with milk of some sort, nooch, pepper, whatever seasonings you want and blend away. I also put this on top of a shepherd's pie thingy and then bake.

Red Lentil Cauliflower Curry is my new favorite meal. I bought cauliflower without realizing that I did not have any more red lentils :(
I made my version of recipe from Weight Watchers Versatile Vegetarian and it came out delish.
Heat 1 TBSP Olive Oil in a skillet
Add 1 tsp curry powder and 1/2 tsp cumin and cook for 30 seconds
Add 1 can chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes
Add cauliflower florets, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, S&P to taste
Add a little water if needed.
Cover and cook until cauliflower is crisp tender.
Add a can of black beans and cook until heated through.

cauliflower is my favorite veg.

i cook a cauliflower soup which is basically tons of olive oil, cauliflower in florets fried for a loooong time, then a bunch of broth and then it simmers until the cauliflower falls apart completely. salt and pepper and you're good to go.
you can add in millet, it makes it wonderful.

it's pretty much the best soup in the world.

My very favorite cauliflower dish is also the easiest one I know. In my family we call it "Impressionist Cauliflower." Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the ingredients - the sum is much greater than the parts. http://inmybox.wordpress.com/2008/03/23 ... romanesco/ (In the post I used romanesco which I actually don't recommend - cauliflower all the way.)

I second or third the vote for aloo gobi. Here's an easy recipe for tofu aloo gobi: http://inmybox.wordpress.com/2010/06/11 ... ava-atlas/

Definitely mashed. I like to stick it under the broiler after mashing to brown the top ^_^

I love cauliflower. It's one of my favorite vegetables(although it's hard to pick a favorite, but I've loved cauliflower ever since I remember as a favorite)

I can easily eat cauliflower plain, but it's easy to roast it. When I roast it I like to put lemon juice and diced kalamata olives on it.

You can also steam cauliflower until it's really really really soft and mash it to make a sort mashed potatoes. I haven't tried this yet, but I hear it's fantastic, I would recommend adding roasted garlic with this!

My favorite Middle Eastern place makes this awesome dish that's just deep fried cauliflower with a tahini sauce. I make a slightly healthier version at home by oven-roasting the cauliflower instead of deep frying. I've been eating this once a week lately, it's so simple and so good. Usually have it with rice pilaf or something similar.
