Onions, and cauliflower
April 25, 2013 4:12pm CST
I went through the box of veggies here I got free last week. There is a pile of cauliflower, and onion. My guys caan't have onion, and they don't care for cauliflower. So I figured why go to waste, I might as well eat it. I was thinking of making a cheese sauce and cooking it in the oven almost like a caserole.

You don't use diced onions in casseroles and soups? Have you tried mashed cauliflower? It's pretty good and might get some of the scaredy-cats to try it. It looks a lot like mashed potatoes and you can add cheese to it for flavor. Or, eat it with gravy if that's what's preferred. The onions can be diced and frozen for later use. We use diced onions all the time in chili. You can shred the onions and make potato pancakes (also called Latkes or Kartoffelpuffer). You can also freeze the cauliflower or make cheesy cauliflower soup. They'd never know they were in there if they were blended. They'd just think it was cheese soup.

i ca't imagine not using onions, at home we even use it most often..when i make fresh salads i also add onions for a twist, sometimes we also use onion when we eat fish grilled or fried, we mix onions with the soy sauce...and we always use onions when we sautee veggies with cauliflowers too. but i have to agree with you, and you did the right thing of eating them instead of letting it go to waste.
