Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes

Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes
A couple weeks ago Giz over at Equal Opportunity Kitchen posted a recipe for Cauliflower Pancakes. They sounded & looked wonderful to me so the head of yellow cauliflower in our fridge was quickly marked for pancakes. When I mentioned them in my weekly menu Dawn at Vanilla Sugar said she hoped there would be cheese in them. Well that was like a light bulb going on over my head. Of course there would be cheese in them! Cheese & cayenne! These were such a simple side dish & a great use for cauliflower (it seems we always end up roasting it). I liked them with a little sour cream to dip them in while Matt preferred them with a little more cheese grated over the top.

Sauteed Radishes with Mint recipe from food52 Author Notes: Butter adds a bit of richness to this otherwise simple dish.

Exposing much of their surface area to brown butter gives them a pretty caramel color and delicate flavor, which the mint subtly accents. To get beautiful browning but retain some crunch, we cut the radishes into wedges slightly wider than 1/2 an inch and were careful not to crowd the sauté pan, and were rewarded with these golden, perfectly al dente beauties.

Popular repin Responses Popular Related Singapore Chili Prawns As you probably already know, I am a bit of a shrimp fanatic and I am always looking for tasty new ways to enjoy shrimp. I recently came across a really interesting recipe for Singapore chili prawns on Almost Bourdain that sounded so good that it quickly pushed its way to the top of my to try list. Not that it takes much to get me interested in a shrimp dish but the two things that caught my attention with this recipe were the use of the sweet chili sauce and the egg drop. I picked up a bottle of sweet chili sauce a while ago and I really liked it but I have only used it a few times since.

Tomato Parmesan Chicken - Living Well Spending Less® My family loves Italian-style food, especially Chicken Parmesan. And while I love making them happy, what I don’t love is the time, effort, and mess involved in making the traditional breaded-then-fried-then-baked version. Not. Gonna. Happen. Because, as you probably already know by now, I much prefer simple meals that whip up fast and can be frozen ahead as part of a freezer cooking day.

Carrot and celeriac root salad with lemon sauce [Vegan] Jaymi's Notes:This is one very simple side dish with an unusual flavor. Though I know plenty of people with an aversion to cooked carrots, these vegetables are cooked until tender but not over done. The trick to yummy cooked carrots is knowing when to stop cooking! gimme some oven » Blog Archive saucy asian meatballs Saucy Asian Meatballs Anyone looking for a fun new appetizer (or even main course!) for the big game this week? These saucy Asian meatballs are some of my favorites!!! I first made them a few months ago when I was experimenting with multiple meatball recipes to serve for a fundraiser. And when my friends graciously “helped me out” with some taste testing, these little guys were the clear winner! Homemade Sun-Dried Tomatoes People have accused me of having a love affair with salt. My retort (which I usually keep inside my head) is that I just like things with flavor. A preference for food with, you know, lots of flavor, has led me to seek out dishes that have the absolute most taste per square millimeter, and that search has led to making sun-dried tomatoes — concentrated little morsels of tomatoes’ sweet-and-savory-ness — at home. Summer’s abundant tomato harvest begs to be preserved, and once you’ve exhausted tomato sauce, salsa, and ketchup, sun-dried tomatoes are a brilliant solution. I took a longing look through White on Rice’s post about actually sun-drying tomatoes with sun over the course of a couple of days. Then I took a long look at my apartment, with its shady fire escape and dusty windowsill, and I decided that my oven was going to be the vehicle for turning my fresh plum tomato slices into their chewy “sun”-dried alter egos.
