I cooked cauliflower for the first time tonight. Growing up I cannot remember a single time my Mom made cauliflower and Dan detests the vegetable, so I've never had a desire to attempt a cauliflower concoction.
Well, since joining a CSA I've been cooking and eating some vegetables that I've never considered before and with very good results. We've had kale, beets and now cauliflower. Dan had one piece and said it was okay which was very encouraging, considering the mere mention of eating cauliflower would cause him to gag. Daniel, who is not a big veggie lover also said it was okay, and Sammy and I really liked it.I used a recipe called Cauliflower Poppers I found on Pinterest. The only changes I made were I mixed the cauliflower with a little olive oil and because I was out of chili pepper I sprinkled on some Cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes. I would definitely use this recipe again if we get more cauliflower in our CSA box.
We also had some left over chili that I made yesterday. I used a new recipe, Spicy Chili, that was really good. I used ground turkey meat instead of beef and added some black beans too. It was very soup like, so I have renamed it Spicy Chili Soup. It was perfect for the cold rainy day we had yesterday. I love finding good new recipes.
