Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable that can be used in so many creative ways! One of the best ways to use cauliflower is as a low-carb replacement for virtually any starch.

You can use cauliflower as a substitute for rice, potatoes, flour, pasta, and even oatmeal! 

Most of these low-carb cauliflower recipes are quick and easy to prepare. Some of them also work great for meal prepping as they can be made ahead of time and frozen. 

10 low carb cauliflower recipes

If you’re using cauliflower as a starch replacement, not only are you eating something that is low-carb, but cauliflower also has more nutrients than potatoes or pasta.

Part of the cruciferous family of vegetables (think kale, cabbage, and broccoli), cauliflower is one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. It’s high in fiber, has a decent amount of protein, and is packed full of vitamins C, K, and Folate. 

All of these delicious low-carb cauliflower recipes have: 

  • less than 20 grams of carbs per serving 
  • some protein content (from 3 to 24 grams per serving!)
  • some healthy fat (to keep you feeling full)
