Low-carb and keto cauliflower recipes

Low-carb and keto cauliflower recipes

Cauliflower is likely the greatest low-carb vegetable ever. It’s extremely versatile, and with only 4% carbs it can even fit ketogenic cooking.

What makes cauliflower so popular is that it has a similar texture to potatoes, but without all the carbs. Interestingly, it contains almost as much vitamin C as oranges. Finally, it’s neutral in flavor which means that you can cook and season it any way you like.

If you’ve been doing low carb for a while you’ve probably heard about cauliflower rice and cauliflower mash, but how about cauliflower pizza, hash browns and lasagna?

Side dishes



Don’t throw away the leaves or the thick stalk. They are perfectly edible as well as the florets. The stalk can be cut into pieces, boiled and made into cauliflower mash and the leaves can be used instead of spinach in a soup or pie or instead of cabbage in a coleslaw.

    Ive been helping my daughter out with a keto diet that has been recommended as part of her treatment for brain cancer, starve the tumour cells of sugar or anything that turns into sugar. One of my favourites from many years ago travelling in France is garden fresh cauliflower florets blanched and sauteed in duck fat and fresh herbs. Very simple, very tasty and fits the keto category nicely. Thanks for making this journey we are on a little simpler when it comes to menu planning and maintaining the right keto balance.

    It is probably very good tasting, but is not Keto. It has breaded (flour) cauliflower, soy sauce, and sugar in it. Wonder if someone can make it keto???? https://pinchofyum.com/general-tsos-cauliflower
