Good old fashioned cauliflower has seen something of a renaissance in recipes for cauliflower in the last year, and it's not hard to understand why.
This is a brassica that boasts plenty of potential in the kitchen, from working as a strong support act in tasty side dishes to taking the spotlight at the main course.
Cauliflowers are also wonderfully versatile, being pale, they easily take on extra colour, whether roasted or fried or doused in spices, and they also lend themselves to working well with strong flavours in dishes around the world.
Recipes for cauliflower are equally varied from making carb free rice from the curds, to salads, curries and comforting bakes.
Here are some of our favourites that will make you fall in love with this proud vegetable all over again.
