Roasted cauliflower mashed up with lemon, garlic and Parmesan cheese. They’re sometimes called “mock” or “faux” mashed potatoes and make a tasty low-carb replacement for them, if you’re into that kind of thing. I’m a big fan of both…but I’m late to the mashed cauliflower party. It won’t happen again.
Roasted cauliflower tossed in a spicy, savory tomato sauce with a hint of vinegary sweetness. Typically the cauliflower would be battered and deep-fried first but given my recent obsession with roasting and knowing how messy and fussy frying is I went the easier route. The timing works out perfect because while the florets are roasting you can get busy making the sauce.
Chicken Divan is a layered casserole of roasted broccoli, cauliflower and sliced chicken breasts smothered in a decadent red-wine-Parmesan-cream-sauce. With sliced almonds, roasted red peppers, onions and garlic, it is not the old school Chicken Divan made with canned soup and sherry. . . Do people still make that? Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong generation.
Deliciously-hearty, curried, whole-grain couscous packed with all the goodness of chickpeas, cauliflower, spinach, golden raisins and almonds. I made it twice in as many days; the first I shared, the second I didn’t. I greedily ate the leftovers at all hours of the day and night. It made me deliriously happy for days on end.
