4 Sneaky Ways to Replace Carbs with Cauliflower

By: Alyse Whitney

At the base of most of our favorite comfort foods are carbs, making it tough to justify eating them every day. But with one magical ingredient swap, you can indulge more often without the guilt trip and get in a serving of vegetables. Stock up on a few heads of cauliflower to make pizza crust (using Tia Mowry's easy recipe , pictured above), tots, mac and cheese, and more.

Not only are these tots made of cauliflower instead of potatoes, but they’re also baked, not fried. It’s an excuse to gobble up the whole basket.

You could put this creamy mayonnaise-rice vinegar hybrid spiced with chives, dill and a little ranch-dressing seasoning on anything and it would taste good. Let’s start with cauliflower.

This recipe uses a little bit of pasta, but bulks up the casserole more with extra vegetables — broccoli, carrots and tomatoes.
