Hello Monday. May I ask you a question? Why are you back so quickly? Don’t you have something better to do? I’m not prepared to go work yet. I want to play and have fun. Since I work every other saturday some weekends seem none existent. This was one of those weekends, although we had a ton of fun. Saturday night we went to a Fundraising Gala followed by a little night out on the town. Kurt and I had a great time.
Well since you are here, dear Monday, let’s make you meatless.
Do you like horseradish? I sure hope you do.
I combined some of my favorite veggies with cheddar cheese and horseradish for a delicious dish. Horseradish contains significant amounts of cancer-fighting compounds called glucosinolates, which increase the liver’s ability to detoxify carcinogens and may suppress the growth of tumors. Combined with cauliflower and broccoli you have a dish loaded with the good stuff. Yes, I know, it has cheese, but a little goes a long way.
I love cauliflower, but don’t feel that I’m cooking enough with it. I was watching a new to me show on the Cooking Channel, How to Live till 100 and the chef, Jason, was making a bunch of different dishes using cauliflower. All looked insanely delicious, by the time it was over I found myself craving cauliflower. What I enjoyed even more that through out the entire episode, Jason explains the benefits that cauliflower offers. And that is definitely my kind of show.
What is your favorite cauliflower dish?
- 1 small head of cauliflower
- 1 broccoli crown
- ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp butter
- ½ cup low fat milk
- 1 tbsp prepared horseradish, or more to taste
- salt & pepper to taste
- ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
- Bring the water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and broccoli and cook until tender about 10 minutes.
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook 1 minute creating a roux.
- Add horseradish. Then add the milk a little at a time, stirring until smooth before adding more. Bring to a simmer but do not allow to boil.
- Add cheese and stir until the cheese melts.
- Season with salt and pepper. Add more horseradish if desired.
- Gently mix cauliflower, broccoli and the sauce. Transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with Panko. Bake in a 425 degree oven until bubbling, about 15 minutes.
