Cauliflower is trending in a major way. It’s tasty, it’s flexible, you can make it into pretty much anything, and yep, it’s low carb. One cup (100 grams) of raw cauliflower has approximately five grams of carbs, and three grams of fiber, meaning that a serving of cauliflower has just two net carbs. If you’re seriously missing the starch while on a keto diet, cauliflower is the best substitute. You'll see what we mean when you try the cauliflower rolls and gluten-free cauliflower pizza crust included in this roundup. Here, 27 keto cauliflower recipes—from main dishes to appetizers—that are damn tasty.

5. ‘Everything Bagel’ Cauliflower Rolls

OK, these rolls don’t taste exactly like white bread (if they did, they’d be pretty boring). Riced, baked cauliflower breaks just like bread and has the same tender crumbs, but doesn’t weigh you down because it’s super low-carb and gluten-free. Thanks, Lexi's Clean Kitchen, for the recipe inspiration.
