What's for dinner, Wednesday?

Even my kids that don't particularly like veggies, like this - Cauliflower Au Gratin.  This is a most-requested recipe and one that you don't even mind eating for breakfast!


AND ONCE AGAIN - a BAD photo for such deliciousness!

Because I'm eating vegan 80% of the time, I veganized half of this recipe.  The right side is the original and the left is the vegan attempt - it didn't turn out too bad, actually!

Cauliflower Au Gratin - original recipe


Remove leaves from the base of the cauliflower and place it whole in a large saucepan with a small amount of water.  Steam, covered, for 10 - 15 minutes or til tender.  Place in a baking dish.


Toss 1/2 c. fresh bread crumbs with 1/4 c. melted butter.  Add 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese and salt and pepper.  Spread over the cauliflower


Bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Serve in wedges.




For the vegan version:


Same instructions but I used Earth Balance for the butter and approximately 2-3 T. nutritional yeast in place of the cheese.


Original recipe from "Always in Season" cookbook
