For the cauliflower, cut in small pieces, throw in food processor with 1 juiced lemon, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 avocado, 2 celery stalks, about 1 cup of water and turn on the food processor. You may want to add more water.
For the broccoli, chop in small pieces. Make a sauce with about 1/2 cup nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup water, pinch or two of salt, any herbs of your choice, squeeze some lemon juice into it and stir. Depending on how thick or thin you like the sauce, you may want to add more water or more nutritional yeast. Pour sauce over broccoli, make sure it coats it well, with some extra sauce all over. If you have a dehydrator, you can place it in there to warm a bit.
Hope this helps.

The veggie nugget recipe Sweetgoddess posted in the Raw Kids forum is good...I've made it and like them alot!
Here's the recipe as she wrote it:
In a food processor, blend a red pepper, a small head of cauliflower, a large stalk of broccoli, a quarter of a sweet onion, 3 carrots, 1 cup soaked almonds, 1 cup soaked sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup sesame seeds,3 cloves garlic, 2 Tbsp Braggs or namu shoyu, any herbs or spices you like, 1 tsp cumin.
Form this mixture into nugget shapes ( like chicken nuggets) and dehydrate on teflex or parchment covered trays until a little crispy. Flip after 4-5 hours.
Serve with honey-mustard dipping sauce ( blend mustard powder into raw honey) or whatever sauce (you like).
If you have Alissa's book, there were very favoring posts here about her broccoli soup and you could do the cauliflower mashed potatoes or there is a "fried rice" recipe posted here somewhere where cauliflower was used as the "rice".

A favorite around our house with broccoli is salad:
broccoli, broken/cut into small pieces (use the peeled stem too, it is yummy)
carrot, as many as you desire, shredded
onion, just a bit for flavoring
sunflower seed, lots
mix and use favorite sweet dressing
I have mixed cauliflower in with all the above. Also have added chopped apple. No matter how I mix it, everybody loves it. I usually take a very big bowl of this to potlucks and always bring home an empty bowl.

slice both thinly, marinate in braggs, or nama shoyu and olive oil just enough to coat, let sit about 1 hour to 24 hours, dehydrate until warm or until soft enough for your liking.
You can also add pea pods, sliced white onion, red pepper, green pepper, bean sprouts, or anything you like.

puree cauliflower with a handful + of macadamia nuts / sea salt and pepper (optional fresh garlic) to make "Mashed Potatoes" soooo good! :p
blend the broccoli w/ fresh water into Broccoli Soup!
*** (add sea salt and herbs/dried/or/fresh if you want to/experiment a bit here or leave plain~)
the possibilities are endless! ;)

I made the veggie nuggets Rawkinlocs posted and I LOVE them! I ate 5 when I went to turn them. All the great recipies really makes raw doable. Tonight I'm doing the cauliflower rice with marinated kale, can't wait. Oh, and the date nut torte is true comfort food ;)

I made Alissa's "mashed" potatoes with the cauliflower....
It really WAS good! I seasoned it bit differently, but.. smoothed out enough, and a bit warmed, it hit the spot.
Her recipe makes enough to feed a family at dinnertime, so you can cut the recipe down to your size, or do what I had to do, and make crackers with the uneaten portion.

There is a cafeteria where I work where I get a salad most every day. They have raw broccoli and cauliflower in some type of creamy white dressing. It is very good but the dressing isn't raw. I was just thinking today before I saw your post about making broccoli/cauliflower/red bell pepper with the Kentucky Fried Chicken coleslaw recipe that is posted in the forum. I'm thinking that would be very good.
