However, we’ve found 5 things you can create with cauliflower that will make your kids fall in love with it! Don’t believe us? Give it a try, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Buffalo Cauliflower wings
Cauliflower is neutral in taste, meaning it is easy to mimic anything you desire, even finger licking buffalo wings. It has a meaty texture, which has proven to be a great plant-based alternative to meat, full of flavour & bite. Buffalo cauliflower wings are fun to eat and look like nuggets! Simply, mix up some corn starch and mild spices like garlic & onion powder, salt and pepper, bake them up until golden and serve them with your favourite sauce.
Yes, you read it right, you can do more with cauliflower than just savoury foods. With more vegetable-based flours popping up, now cauliflower has made its way into our pantries in the form of flour!

Mini Sausage Rolls
There is nothing more satisfying or delicious than making your own sausage rolls. If you’re hosting a kids birthday party, rather than buying the frozen sausage rolls that are full of all kinds of things, try making your own. If you don’t want to make the sausage mix, simply split open your favourite sausages and use that, and for the pastry, opt for PomPom Paddocks gluten free Cauliflower Flour, rather than regular flour.
As the saying goes, ‘If cauliflower can become pizza, you too can do anything’, and we couldn’t agree more, the humble vegetable is a great alternative to flour, especially for those who have gluten intolerances. Rather than ordering a pizza, make your own and get the kids involved, by helping you make the dough and getting them to choose their toppings, it’s a fun experience the whole family will enjoy!
