Cauliflower Cake

a slice with saladHappy New Year! Have you made any resolutions? Let me know what you’re determined to change or accomplish this year. Personally, I’m not big on goal setting. It makes me very uncomfortable. I fear the inevitable disappointment if I fall short of my target.

A good friend of mine resolved to express more gratitude this year. She wrote me a beautiful note, letting me know how grateful she is for our friendship. I was so touched. Yet, a small part of me felt like crap! Maybe I should be resolving to be a better person too. Or maybe I’ll just bake a cake, a vegetable cake. That counts as virtuous, doesn’t it?baked

In this rendition, cauliflower gets boiled until soft and tender. Then it gets folded into a gossamer light cake batter, made with eggs, flour and baking powder. Basil and rosemary add a herbal freshness. Parmesan and Gruyere cheese add some gooey, nutty saltiness and the addition of turmeric makes this cake positively sunny. assembling 2ready to bake 2Topped with thinly sliced tomatoes and shallots, this is a very pretty golden cake indeed. on white plates

    Mmmmm this looks absolutely delicious! I’m endlessly surprised by the extent use of cauliflower! Healthy too! Thanks for sharing! I’m not really a big goal setter either, but I do enjoy celebrating accomplishments. I am quite determined to continue growing my blog in 2016 and to develop a more regular posting habit as well pushing for better content and style. Been on a hiatus due to some personal issues but as soon as I get them sort out I will be coming right back! Can’t wait to start cooking again 😀

      Thanks Cher, Looking forward to reading more regular blog posts from you. Blogging becomes easier when you do it more often. Your three cups chicken was very delicious. I am always looking for new ways to serve chicken thighs! Happy New year!
