I met a wonderful couple the other day that I will never forget. He told me he was 90 and she didn’t divulge her age- and both of them looked wonderful and happy. They had been married for decades. They both love to cook and he was a former chef. We talked for a long time about food and cooking and how our easiest recipes are often are best. And as we chatted, I was able to glean a recipe that sounded a bit strange, but turned out to be fabulous.
It is a perfect side dish for just about any meal and it only uses three ingredients. I call it Cauliflower Casserole and even if you aren’t a big fan of vegetables, this dish is sure to please. It is tangy and cheesy and full of crunchy texture.
I know that my new friends read this column every week, so I want to say thank you for the great new addition to my recipe file!
Place cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes. Drain. Mix together the mayonnaise and cheese in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower and toss to coat. Place in a lightly sprayed 9 by 13 inch baking dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
