I love cauliflower, but the rest of my family has mixed feelings about it. I recently realized that this may be partly due to how I usually cook it.
The easiest, and probably healthiest, way to serve cauliflower is either raw or steamed, and those are the two ways I usually fix it.
As good as raw and steamed are, they are a bit boring. So, in my effort to make my vegetables less boring, I have been experimenting with some vegetable side dishes.
I have roasted my cauliflower, but I am trying to find even more ways that will be interesting and appealing to my kids.
I recently saw a recipe for cauliflower in an old Taste of Home magazine and decided to adapt it a bit and give it a try.
My family loved it. This was so easy and so good. And because it was covered in cheese, my kids loved it.
What is your favorite way to make vegetables more interesting and appealing to your kids?
