Cauliflower-Spinach Frittata in a Sweet Potato Crust

Quiches are one of my favorite things to make, everyone in my family loves them.  They are typically fairly healthy, but I wanted to make an even healthier version.  So, this is a cross between a quiche and a frittata, using a sweet potato crust. And surprisingly, my son the pie-crust-lover deemed this to be…

Breaded Cauliflower with Sriracha Dipping Sauce

We had just a little bit more of the local cauliflower left, just enough for a taste treat. So I decided to try another version of roasted cauliflower, this time breaded. And as a treat, a spicy dipping sauce to go with it.  It was a fun change from my typical roasted cauliflower; and fun…

Roasted Vegetable Tart and Quiche

Two versions tonight – why?  I roasted a lot of vegetables and my pastry crust was not big enough, so I also pulled out a pre-made pie crust and made a quiche. Each was worth making individually, so I have included both. Some in the family preferred the quiche… Others the tart… Roasted Vegetable Filling…

Cauliflower, Tomato & Feta Frittata

Frittatas are a favorite food in our house. Second only to vegetable hashes topped with eggs.I mean, really, what’s not to love?  Eggs, vegetables and, typically, cheese. So good, we tend to dive in before I can take a decent picture… I had bought a locally grown cauliflower.  These are so big that the quart…

Pasta with Cauliflower & Sun-dried Tomatoes

Look at this cauliflower, it is beautiful! And it is huge, the size of two typical cauliflowers. This picture was taken after I had already broken off a bunch of florets to munch on. And, of course, it was locally grown and purchased at one  of my favorite road-side stands. How to do such a…

Cauliflower Pasta al Forno

Thanks to the return of the groundhog, my broccoli and cauliflower plants have been decimated.  So, I am back to buying them from local farmers.  It is so sad to see my plants with their top sections bitten off.  The groundhog, however, does not seem to like swiss chard or curly kale.  So those are…

Roasted Cauliflower Melt

I had 8 cauliflower plants growing in my garden.  The operative word being “had”.  I went out one morning to find the tops eaten off of every one of them.  All that was left were the base leaves.  Incorrectly, I blamed the bunnies and tried to figure out how they were getting into the garden,…

Spice-Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes and Cauliflower

If you have been wondering what the picture in the header of the blog is, here is the post to answer the question… Jerusalem artichokes I dug out of the garden last week. When I went out to the garden to check the plants, expecting that the crop would be a failure due to really…

Orecchiette with Seared Cauliflower, Chicken and Greens

It is funny that some of my favorite dishes are created when I am trying to clean out either my refrigerator or my cabinet.  This time I needed space in my refrigerator to prepare for Thanksgiving.  What needed to go?  half a cauliflower, half a bag of baby greens, and some chicken fingers that Cam…
