Turmeric, best known for it’s use in curries, seems to be popping up everywhere, in a variety of recipes – everything from hummus to smoothies to dry rubs.

This bright yellow spice is both a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and is commonly used to add rich spice and color to dishes.

Roasted Cauliflower and Turmeric Soup

The Test Kitchen wanted to include turmeric in a soup and decided that the spice would complement roasted cauliflower beautifully.

Roasted Cauliflower and Turmeric Soup

For Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Turmeric, drizzle cauliflower florets, one shallot and a clove of garlic with olive oil and bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees, until the cauliflower is fork tender. Add vegetable broth, roasted cauliflower, garlic, shallot, sugar, salt, turmeric, cumin and pepper to the Hamilton Beach Professional Blender jar. Cover and PUREE for 1 minute. Then pour half and half into the filler cap and PULSE until the soup is well blended.

We garnished this rich and creamy soup with roasted chickpeas and fresh cilantro for an added crunch and pop of color, but topping it with a little extra roasted cauliflower or even some sriracha for additional spice would be delicious.

I think we can all agree that if it’s covered in Buffalo sauce, it’s likely (definitely) delicious. Whether you’re noshing on Buffalo Chicken Dip, Buffalo pasta salad, Buffalo macaroni and cheese, or classic Buffalo chicken wings, you’re savouring every single minute.

The Test Kitchen discussed what would and would not “Buffalo” well and settled on attempting to “Buffalo” fried cauliflower.

As previously mentioned, Buffalo sauce is the nectar of the Gods/undisputedly tasty and guess what? That holds true when fried cauliflower is covered in the tangy, bright orange sauce. Surprise, surprise.

This deep-fried snack is a creative vegetarian option to serve at your tailgate, party, or in front of the T.V. during the big game. Our tasting panel couldn’t have been more pleased with the result and would gladly eat these instead of or along side classic Buffalo wings on gameday. We all agreed on one thing though – get them while they’re hot. Right out of the deep fryer is the best way to enjoy these vegetarian delights so go ahead and fry up the entire head of cauliflower – you’ll be shocked at how quickly they’re gone. And according to any Buffalonian, it’s ONLY acceptable to serve these bites with bleu cheese dressing (don’t even mention ranch). They’ll be quick to tell you that anything else is completely unacceptable.

Now that the holiday season has come to an end most of us are looking to lighten things up a bit – both physically and in the kitchen.

After months of cookies and pies, parties, and family feasts, I’m looking forward to getting out my juicer and eating (even if it’s just a little) healthier.

You have probably seen cauliflower rice on Pinterest, restaurant menus, or even pre-packaged at the grocery store. While it may seem intimidating, it’s actually extremely simple to make. With the help of the Hamilton Beach® Professional 14-Cup Dicing Food Processor, we “riced” a head of cauliflower and turned it into a delicious, refreshing side dish to help jumpstart our healthy eating in 2017.

Break or cut a head of cauliflower into florets. Transfer half of the cauliflower to a food processor fitted with a chopping/mixing blade. Pulse until it’s finely chopped or “riced.” The colour, texture, and size mimics white rice – hence the name cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice can be used in a variety of recipes, from stir fry to pizza (it makes a great low-carb crust). While working on the recipe, the Test Kitchen realized it not only mimics rice, but also couscous.

Use this light, fluffy “rice” to make a couscous-like salad to serve as a side in the New Year. After cooking the cauliflower rice on the stove top, add toasted walnuts, feta, and golden raisins. Finish the dish with a zesty lemon dressing. The result is so close to couscous you really may not be able to tell the difference.

This Mediterranean-style cauliflower rice is low-carb and packed with flavour. Take it as a healthy lunch or serve it alongside baked fish for a waistline-friendly dinner. Trust us, you’ll be too busy enjoying this refreshing salad to care whether it’s rice, couscous, or cauliflower.
