cauliflower flatbread recipeNeed a healthy appetizer or snack? This flatbread uses local, in-season foods you can find at the Farmers Market, even through this cold weather.

I went to Headhouse Square and picked up Birchhill Farms Blue cheese, red onions and a Romanesco cauliflower (due to the sheer size of that monster veggie) a couple of Sundays ago.

For Thanksgiving, I brought this cauliflower flatbread as an appetizer and can confirm that it was family approved. The best part? It didn’t take me super-long to whip together, and was less time-consuming than the other butternut squash flatbread I made.

Cauliflower, Onion & Blue Cheese Flatbread Recipe

Cauliflower flatbread

Serves 2-3 people per flatbread.


  • Flatbread or Naan
  • Cauliflower (I used the Romanesco cauliflower variety)
  • Onions
  • Blue Cheese
  • Olive Oil or cooking oil.
  • Walnuts (optional)


  1. Steam the cauliflower for 5 minutes to maintain crispness. After steaming, chop into small pieces.
  2. Sauté onions for 5 minutes in Olive Oil. Your other option is to caramelize them.
  3. Cover the flatbread with blue cheese, cauliflower and onions. Add walnuts if desired.
  4. Serve.

    I never dreamed that cauliflower and flatbread would make such a great combo, but I can’t wait to try it with my gluten-free flatbread recipe! ~Alicia

    I didn’t think it would be as great either until I tried it! :-) Shockingly my family demolished 3 flatbreads before Thanksgiving Dinner (and took a little for leftovers after) and liked this one better! I think it was the ‘crunch’ factor and different taste sensation. Also, the blue cheese compliments the crisp cauliflower. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts! :-)
