If you have been following my blog, you will notice that we eat a lot of cauliflower.  That is because there are so many interesting ways you can prepare it to make it delicious and taste different.  This recipe for Cauliflower Breaded Chicken – tasted almost exactly like breaded chicken, but so much healthier and still good.  I cooked this one day during the week and the only difficult thing about it, was the time it took to bake the cauliflower “bread” crumbs.

I started by chopping the cauliflower into chunks and placed them into the food processor until they were the same size as couscous.  Then I sprinkled the cauliflower onto the covered baking sheet.  The baking sheet is covered with parchment paper because I hate cleaning the baking sheets after I use them.  The cauliflower is wet, I found that it was good to sprinkle the cauliflower onto the pan to avoid large clumps forming.

I have seen chefs on TV cook soufflés a lot, and one day I decided I was going to do it!   As I always do I first researched a couple different recipes and took the things that I liked from them.  Martha Stewart has some of my favorite recipes to make – they are easy to follow and allow for a little creativity as you go.  I had to cook the soufflé at Jamie’s house because their oven had a window – very important to only cook a soufflé in an oven that has a window.  Before Jamie and I lived together he lived with two guys – Matt and Jason.   It was the perfect place to cook something sweet while they all watched football.  However, it didn’t take Jamie’s attention off of me – he took a photo of me watching the soufflé to make sure it did not sink in.
