I never thought to make cauliflower any “other” way, but this does look good!

We always cook/steam it, and the drizzle it with browned margarine and a sprinkle of salt.

Yumm! This looks great! Thanks for stopping by today. I do cook 3 times a day usually. It’s relaxing for me and gets me out of the chaos of my toy covered living room LOL. I just posted a WFMW on how I save time cooking. A meal can look like it takes forever but it really doesn’t :)

What? You have been missing out!!!
We love Cauliflower! Cauliflower soup is one of our favorite soups to have! I just made a chicken a rice soup the other day with broccoli and cauliflower in it, it was so good!

I’m not a cauliflower fan, but I’m going to try this. I do like cauliflower soup (ours is pureed and is nice and creamy–maybe I’ll post that one soon)

Oh yum! This looks good and I really love cauliflower. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for a great recipe for cauliflower…we are going to have to try this. Looks delicious!

How funny, my boys call broccoli “trees” too! I believe that cauliflower would turn into trees with snow…lol :)

So what was the price breakdown for this dinner? :) Just curious…


Terri and Bob October 3, 2008 at 4:31 pm

I love cauliflower so I am quite happy to try this one!

Thanks for all your ideas everyone! Maybe we’ll try more cauliflower recipes whenever it goes on sale next!
I did not include a price breakdown for this dish. It was not part of our original dinner! My mother in law gently insisted that I use it, as she wouldn’t be able to. I happened to have cottage cheese and cheese that were both on sale this week, so Voila! If I had to guess, the dish would have been $2.50 – $3. Since I don’t buy cauliflower, I have NO idea how much it costs!

I tried it last weekend and my boyfriend and I loooved it! Obviously, a whole head (do you say so?) was too much for the two of us, so I keep eating it at work – along with potatoes, it’s terrific! Thanks so much for the recipe!

An excellent way to serve cauliflower is to drizzle some olive oil on, salt and pepper, garlic powder and whatever other seasonings you like (boyfriend likes chili powder for a “kick”) and just stick it in the oven until it’s crispy. It’s almost better than french fries!

I know I’m commenting long after you posted this, but I wanted you to know that I tried this and my entire family LOVED it! I could have eaten it for days! I just wish cauliflower was on sale more often. I’m wondering if it would be as good with frozen cauliflower? I think I’m going to have to find out!

You can also take cauliflower, boil it in water or chicken broth (save broth for another meal), drain broth add desired salt & pepper and mix with blender and get mashed potaoes. This comes from south beach diet.

What?! I now have to buy the cookbook in order to get the recipe? I made this before, and I am now making out a grocery list for the week. I wanted to make this recipe this week, and now I have to pay to get it? :(
