Mild, sweet cauliflower is a huge bargain at just 25 calories per cup, and once you start experimenting, you’ll be amazed at how versatile this veggie is in the kitchen. To make a low-carb, low-cal substitute for creamy mashed potatoes, puree soft, steamed cauliflower with a dab of low-fat cream cheese, a touch of broth, and seasonings (get my simple recipe). If “crunchy” is your thing, try roasting the florets with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese — the cauliflower crisps up beautifully!
