Olivia and Zoe love eating roasts as long as cauliflower with cheese sauce makes an appearance ! I do love the taste of steamed cauliflower with a creamy cheese sauce drizzled over the top and finished off in a hot oven to brown and crisp.
Sometimes we get stuck cooking vegetables in the same way ,only steaming them when often there are other methods of cooking the same vegetable which can result in other delicious dishes.
Cutting the cauliflower into florets and then into very fine “rice” has become a popular form of fried rice as an alternative to cooking rice. It is simply fried along with other vegetables and even adding in some chopped bacon or small prawns can add in some protein.
Roasting vegetables such as cauliflower adds a nutty flavour and allows maintaining a crisp texture and colour . I like adding a handful of toasted nuts, chopped herbs such as parsley, coriander, some dried fruits such as currents, all tossed together with a light dressing make for a fabulous salad.
Why not make a raw salad ,cut and mix raw cauliflower for a very crunchy salad. Children always love raw vegetables and young fresh vegetables are very tasty . Why not give it a go ?
