    Default Cauliflower puree

    I made a cauliflower puree tonight. I think I need to write the
    recipe down so I don't forget it, cause it is gooooood.

    Whole head of cauliflower broken into florettes and simmered till
    tender.
    Put couple cube of butter, some salt and pepper in the Cuisinart and
    added the
    cauliflower and started to puree.

    It was a bit thin so I added a couple handfulls of potato buds ( I
    always have potato buds on hand to use as a thickener for soups etc).
    Pureed some more, and it
    started to tighten up a bit.

    Still tasted a bit thin so I added a big spoonful of sour cream.
    Pureed. Better...but
    not quite there.

    Added a cup or more of grated parmesan and pureed till thoroughly
    mixed.

    Yum.

    Still very low carb since it was a big head of cauliflower with not
    much potato buds.
    Tasty, went well with my green beans and squash and chicken breast.

    sounds good. I make a cauliflower soup that is really thick that has
    about
    the same ingredients. I like it especially in the winter. Lots of
    parm cheese
    butter & cream. All good stuff in one pot!! I haven't used it as
    rice yet tho.

    I have made the cauliflower pizza crust. Found the recipe by
    Googling around. It turned out
    quite well. Really good flavor and surprisingly good texture.

    I've never been a big fan of cauliflower since to me it doesn't have
    much in the way of flavor, but
    it's a good base to start with for other things.

    I left out the fennell and added some parmesan. I also scaled up the
    recipe.

    Bake it then top it and bake it or broil the toppings. Really good.

    I used a slotted spoon to take it from the pot to the cuisinart.
    Added a cup or so of the cooking water so that it would
    puree, then went from there.

    I love cauliflower puree. I make it more like a thick soup though. I
    believe it is Jill's recipe. Roasted Cauliflower Soup. It has soup in
    the name but it's pretty thick. No butter, no cream or milk but you'd
    think it was in there. I skip the plain water.

    Jill, if this is yours, please fess up. I'd like to attribute it.
    Originally I had just copied it into my old recipe collection format, a
    text doc.


    @@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

    Roasted Cauliflower Soup Recipe

    soups, vegetable dishes, vegetables

    2 heads cauliflower
    2 yukon gold potatoes, roughly chopped into; bite-size pieces
    3 garlic cloves
    2 shallots (or one l
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    3 cups vegetable broth or organic chicken; broth
    1 cup water
    sea salt and pepper, to taste

    Preheat oven to 350 F.

    Cut cauliflower into 1-inch flowerets (about 10 cups). In a large baking
    pan toss cauliflower, potatoes, garlic, and shallots with olive oil and
    roast in oven for about 25-35 minutes, or until golden.

    In a large pot, simmer broth, water, roasted cauliflower and potato
    mixture for 20 minutes, or until cauliflower is very tender. Use your
    blender to puree soup in batches until smooth and return to pot. Add sea
    salt and pepper to taste. Heat soup over low to medium heat until just
    heated through.

    (Posters note: I'd use a hand blender for ease. I have to wonder if
    the Author knows about them?)

    Makes approximately 10 cups.

    Optional: sprinkle some fresh chopped parsley on top of each bowl for
    presentation just before serving.

    if you drain for about thirty mins in a colender,sp, before starting,
    reserving the juice you can have a bit better control and add a bit less of
    the potato buds, for most lower carb is better than higher carb, but
    reducing carbs even more would be the point of draining, Lee

    I grew up eating it roasted and fried and have always loved it.

    Oh, it's also great gratineed or scalloped. It is a nice addition to
    pasta dishes and can be used interchangeably with broccoli, IMO.
