YES! That’s one of my favorite methods too. I also just throw a handful of one or the other or both into stir-fries or pasta dishes or soups. And of course cauliflower is a good substitute for some carbs.
Sounds gross! Don’t know that i’d ever try it before you saying how good it is. I’ll keep my eyes peeled and connect with my adventurous side or adventurous taste buds! Lol What do I have to loose besides 8-12 bucks for a luxury cup of joe…
I love them both: steamed, roasted, grilled, stir-fried. Both are great added to mac-n-cheese. Cauliflower is awesome in curry. Broccoli cheddar soup is great too. I need them both to be fully cooked though; if raw, they upset my stomach.
Man some of you people are fancy with your cooking. Here is how I do it. Take frozen veggie, put in glass container, put in microwave appropriate time, depending on the veggie add butter and/or salt or neither. Eat.
Did I say I hate to cook? That being said, if someone else cooks it I’ll eat fancy.
@Kidsandliz You can do the same things with fresh cauliflower or broccoli too … also, “the mix with salt-pepper-olive oil and spread it on a sheet pan” method that @tinamarie1974 mentioned is super easy and really good.
Company broccoli: Steam the broccoli. Mix it with shredded cheddar cheese, salt and pepper (I like mixed peppercorns freshly ground) and something like a can of “cream of” soup or white cream sauce (cornstarch, water and butter). Line a casserole with crushed ritz crackers that are mixed with melted butter. Pour in broccoli mixture. Add a thin layer of the crushed ritz mix. Bake, covered in oven at 400° for 45 minutes. Last 10 minutes, remove the lid so it can lightly brown.
@Star2236 My kid brother hated peas. We were from the “you can’t leave the table until you eat your veggies” type home. He had gotten caught one time too many slipping his veggies to our dogs under the table and came up with a brilliant but short lived alternative. He carefully managed to roll his peas under the lip of his dinner plate. It looked like he had eaten enough of them to pass muster, and wasn’t caught until the dinner table was cleared, and there was a nearly perfect circle of peas on the table in front of his chair.
i’ll eat cauliflower before i go anywhere near broccoli, and will occasionally even buy whole cauliflower on purpose to make cauliflower cheese. but in general, neither because there’s just plenty of veg i like better.
