I can't get enough of cauliflower. I love roasting it and adding it to fresh salads, turning it into velvety soups, and transforming it into "rice" for easy meals throughout the week. I even enjoy it raw when dipped in something delicious on a crudité platter. Cauliflower might look kind of bland and unappetizing, but there's magic inside that cruciferous vegetable — and it needs your help to unlock that power.
To continue the love for this humble vegetable, I asked Pinterest to share the top cauliflower recipe on their platform and it's (not so surprisingly) low-carb and keto-friendly.

As the recipe notes, cauliflower is the unsung hero of the low-carb world. Instead of eating mashed potatoes, for example, you'd eat mashed cauliflower like with this recipe. This recipe is also heavy on the fat (cheese, sour cream, bacon), which makes it a great keto-friendly option for a side dish or even dinner. The only equipment you need for this recipe is a microwave. The recipe suggests you use a food processor to "mash" the cauliflower, but if you have a blender or a potato masher, those might also work as well.
This 20-minute recipe starts by warming the cauliflower florets in a microwave for five minutes, and then running the florets through the food processor. Then you add sour cream, cheddar, butter, crumbled bacon, chives, and seasoning to the cauliflower. You then plate the dish, add even more cheddar cheese, and put it back in the microwave to melt the cheese.
