Cauliflower craze

I've found my new favorite vegetable. I've been eating a lot of cauliflower. I even like it mashed with a little milk and butter, and a lot of salt and pepper. I can almost pretend it is potatoes.

Last night I steamed some cauliflower until it was just about done. Then I put it into a casserole dish with a little butter and some sauteed peppers and onions. I added in some shredded cheese and popped it back into the oven until it got nice and bubbly.

I made a small piece of fish to go with it and had a big plate of the casserole. It was extremely satisfying and I was full the rest of the evening.

I love cauliflower. I roast it in the oven with a sprinkle of olive oil and garlic salt. If you roast it till brown, it's a little crunchy and very satisfying. Mashed is good too. Like you TwylaDee, I pretend it's mashed potatoes.

I like it roasted too. It can be cooked just about any way that you want and it holds up fairly well. I even like it raw in salad or with a hummus dip. My only complaint is that the price has been too high. I do buy bags of the frozen stuff, but I'd prefer it to be fresh.

Yum... I need to try this. I think I would love it roasted. I am not sure that I would like it mashed though. I do love potatoes though so I am not sure that mashed would do the trick.

Cauliflower is such a hard and dry vegetable that I find it helps to steam it a little before roasting or toss it in a little oil first. A little thyme or rosemary and some sea salt and it's really good.

Wonderful suggestions. I think I might need to look into more cauliflower recipes. We eat a lot of broccoli, but it tends to not agree with my stomach. If cauliflower is a little more mild, it might be a better vegetable fix.

I do this too. I love cauliflower and paired with broccoli it is the one vegetable that I have had success with getting my children to eat. They barely know the difference when I substitute this for mashed potatoes. Another way I have tried this is to make it into macaroni and cheese. This is a much healthier version of a favorite comfort food.
