Cauliflower & Broccoli Gratin with Horseradish Cheddar Sauce

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.
