Another Cauliflower Thing…

I have been trying to use seasonal vegetables more and cauliflower keeps jumping into the grocery cart. I like it raw, dipped in something preferably. I did like it fried. It’s good covered in cheese sauce, but what isn’t? I tried a sort of healthy cheese cauliflower thing tonight and will probably not repeat it. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good. Just sort of there. The recipe was from Recipes from a Kitchen Garden, where I’ve certainly found other good ideas for vegetables. It comes from Shepherd’s Seeds where I often buy my garden seeds and is filled with cute drawings. Maybe I should actually grow it in order to really enjoy it. Maybe it was the Swiss cheese… Cheddar is more to my pedestrian tastes I admit.

Mashed Cauliflower Gratin

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut in florets
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 Tbs milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese (or something!)
  • 3 Tbs bread crumbs (I used Panko)
  • 3 Tbs grated Parmesan
  • dash of nutmeg

Steam or simmer the cauliflower until soft, then drain. Mash with the butter, milk, and Swiss cheese. Put in a greased shallow casserole dish, sprinkle with the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and nutmeg. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
