What do you do when you have three entire heads of cauliflower that need used up like yesterday???
You type cauliflower into Pinterest durrr.
And then you actually make that shit, instead of just losing it in your recipe board in between the green smoothies and the Dorito casserole.
I do not actually have any recipes involving Doritos in my personal Pinterest boards, I need space for classier things like jalapeno popper grilled cheeses.
Step one: accept the fact that your house is going to smell like farts for a while
Step two: notice that your toddler has decided to wave pouch of green smoothie in the air like she just doesn't care and there are little green specks all over the office rug, take deep breath, clean it up and move on..
Step three: clean and cut all of the cauliflower so you don't have to keep doing it over again.
First, I decided to go with cauliflower "tots". I've made these before and they were one of the most delicious things I've ever put in my mouth but I remember them being a lot of work so I never made them again. This time it didn't seem so bad.
I used this Skinnytaste recipe, but ended up adding parmesan and omitting onions because I hate onions with the fire of a thousand sun..ions. (huh?)
I had to make two batches since the first one disappeared before they were probably even technically cooled enough to eat. Saying they taste like a combination of tater tots and chicken nuggets doesn't sound like so much of a compliment but they are so so good. For the second batch I used a mini muffin pan and threw all measurements out the window. I eyeballed everything and they turned out just as good.
The second cauliflower head is going to be steamed and pureed into random dinners because I am an evil genius that way. (Actually I have to give Jessica Seinfeld the credit; her cookbooks taught me everything I know about forcing my family to eat their veggies.)
The fate of the third cauliflower head is still undecided. Any recommendations?
PS I have about 5 posts in my drafts because I can never figure out how to wrap things up and that's nonsense. So...
