When we first started Over The Backyard Fence we used a lot of our Monday posts for recipe’s. Since I don’t cook much it didn’t take too long for me to run out of tried and true dishes so lately I’ve concentrated more on food. This Week I chose Cauliflowers. I can remember when it was just another vegetable, used mainly in soup and almost always included in raw vegetable trays with dip. Rarely did I use it as a side dish, but when I did, mostly for holidays or company, it simply had to have a cheese topping. Now I use it as an alternative to potatoes. It fries and mashes really well. Put in omelets it is a healthy addition.
Cauliflower traces its origin back to the wild cabbage which resembled kale or collards more than the vegetable that it is today. It went through many transformations and reappeared as an important vegetable since at least 600 B.C.
I looked up recipes and one that caught my attention was using cauliflowers instead of rice in fried rice. Ummm. Also in stir fries. Anyone have any recipe’s to share?
