This is a kid favorite. It’s fresh and light and heavily sweetened with fruit — ideal to offer to an uninitiated smoothie drinker.

Every time I finish a bowl of this green smoothie, I feel refreshed.

This dish tastes kind of like a stir-fry — minus the meat or chicken, but more importantly, minus the frying, the pan to wash, and the standing over the stove!

21. The Best Roasted Cauliflower by Menachem Goodman

Delicious is an understatement for how good this is cauliflower is. When I made it for my family it was finished before it even hit the table. I don’t like to pick “sides,” but if I had to pick one it would definitely be this one.

All the flavor of buffalo wings with a more wholesome, veggie base. We love these Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings” as a pass-around snack.

23. Cauliflower Burgers by Brynie Greisman

I made these recently for a family gathering. Everyone loved them — from my one-year-old granddaughter to my older relatives. They are full of ingredients that are good for you, are mildly seasoned, and of course are baked (not fried). Feel free to up the seasoning if that’s how you like it.

24. Sheet-Pan Capon Dinner by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen

I first came up with this idea on a whim. I hid some veggies under chicken I was baking — and the result was so good! The chicken gave delicious flavor to the veggies and gave them an almost steamed feel. Feel free to use broccoli instead of cauliflower.

28. Breakfast Power Bowl by Sara and Yossi Goldstein

We all know that a good breakfast is extremely important for a focused and productive day. Breakfast foods in general are usually carb- or sugar-heavy, yielding not exactly the results we are looking for. This savory power breakfast bowl is loaded with “good for you” proteins, vegetables, and fats, making it a really nutritious way to start off your day! I love using cauliflower rice as a base since it’s light while still being a great canvas for the breakfast flavors in the bowl to shine through.

These make a really nice pass-around appetizer.
