That sounds really good. I love cauliflower and am always looking for ways to prepare it. Since I'm really watching my starchy carbs right now, I wonder if I could delete the breadcrumbs and sprinkle the romano on top of the casserole instead?

Thanks for sharing!

That doesn't sound all that much different from mock mashed potatoes; I don't see any reason why you couldn't omit the bread crumbs.

The pureed cauliflower sounds good, I bet my husband would love it.

I make something along the same lines.

However, I microwave the cauliflower for about 10 minutes, do not process it, and do not use eggs.

I suppose what I make is more of a roasted cauliflower recipe.

After microwaving, the cauliflower goes into an oven-proof dish. I throw on a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice, add some minced garlic, salt and pepper, sprinkle with herbes de provence, and finally add shaved or shredded Parmesan. Sometimes I add a few bread crumbs, sometimes not.

I bake it at 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

it is similar, the same with squash cassarole, they are all similar. We do the mock potatoes quite often cause hubby loves cauliflower and a whole head is hard for 2 of us to finish. The same with squash cassarole during the summer. We bake it a lot and we do use bread crumbs or stove top stuffing.

Yes you can omit the bread crumbs, sprinkle parm cheese or any shredded cheese you like on top, maybe put some chives in them.

love the idea of chives and additional cheese, but I have to admit, I do not use low fat or reduced fat cheese, there isn't enough cheese taste for us.

I usually saute it in olive oil with a dusting of cumin and S & P, pretty tasty hot or cold.

You can use regular cheese, I am watching my weight so that's why I don't use full fat chesse.

I was actually thinking of using the romano already called for in the recipe as a sub for the breadcrumbs - sprinkling it on top instead of mixing it in. But I think parm or shredded cheese (instead of romano) would taste good, too. The chives sound really good, too.

I think I'll try this recipe this week when I have baked cod for dinner and need a little more on my plate than steamed broccoli.
