Loaded Cauliflower Casserole
This loaded cauliflower casserole recipe is a delicious dish full of all your favorite naughty foods, so be sure to make this on a day when you are setting your food plan aside and treating yourself to a wonderful something just for you. This cauliflower casserole recipe is also easy to make. The key word to note for an easy recipe is, casserole. Almost by definition, a casserole dish means pretty much any collection of veggies, meat, chicken or even fish that you put together and then smother in a favorite liquid. That liquid could be milk, broth, tomatoes or any other thing you might have in mind. The point is, when it is a casserole, a jumble of your favorite things, or sometimes, whatever things you have stuck still in the fridge at the end of the week, can cook up in a wonderful broth, cheese sauce or other liquid and taste great. So try it yourself.
This particular casserole recipe combines cauliflower and cheese; in fact, two of them. Cauliflower is a vegetable that is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, possibly one of the best vegetable groups that you could choose to eat from. Eating from this food group several times a week can offer you and your family tremendous nutrition and great support for the good health of all the people in your family. So eat plenty of them. And there are lots to choose from. Start with this cauliflower recipe and then go on to broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and even kale. As you get familiar with this group of veggies, you might start to notice just how colorful they are, ranging from the soft white of cabbage and cauliflower to the deep purple of many cabbages and collard greens. In addition, you may also notice that, if you cook them too much, they release a pungent scent. So always only cook these veggies until they are just el dente (which is also more nutritious for you).
So this particular casserole recipe uses cauliflower, a veggie that has tremendous versatility. It can even substitute for potatoes, and some people do, when they are really watching their weight (although potatoes are so nutritious and low calorie, there is no real reason to not eat them). In any event, this dish also combines two different kinds of cheese to help make a real flavor splash with this cauliflower. And, unlike many of the veggies in this cruciferous group, cauliflower is less strongly flavored, one of the reasons many people do not really care for this group of veggies. But learn to like them, and smothered with these cheeses and cream, the cauliflower will be quite delicious.
