A friend of mine emailed me this cauliflower recipe because she knew how much I was loving it right now. One night I was looking for something to make for dinner – high protein and high fiber (wedding diet) – and I remembered this one. It ended up being one of my favorite cauliflower recipes. I had to change the vegetables up a little bit (from the original recipe) because of the high sugar content. Instead of using the traditional carrots and peas, I replaced them with asparagus and bell peppers which actually turned out really good.
I had to mention my four-legged sous chef in the kitchen – Dexter. As a sous chef he spends most of his time sitting under the cutting board waiting patiently for something to drop. I like to think he just wants to spend time with me in the kitchen, but I know that he is just looking for some cheese. I have learned that he doesn’t care for cauliflower or broccoli, when those drop on the ground he spits them out. But when cheese, tomatoes, or any bread products drop on the ground he is all over it.
I have had Dexter for 5 years and have loved to share my love of cooking with him in the kitchen. Because of his potential weight problem as a pug, he does not get to enjoy much of what I cook in the kitchen; unless it falls on the floor. So really he could also be considered a maid for the kitchen floor. Jamie has learned to love him, even with Dexter’s snoring, loud breathing, barking and loads of hair – he might not love him as much as I do, but it’s a start.
