Cooking with Cauliflower

This week we made Cauliflower Bread for our snack.
Costco sells cauliflower already chopped which made it easier to work with the children.
I found the recipe at ifoodreal.
First you bake the cauliflower at 375 for 20 minutes.
When you take it out turn your oven up to 450 for the next step of baking to come.
Place a tea towel over a bowl and scoop all the baked cauliflower into it.
It is still hot so let it cool a bit.
I did this part myself while the children watched me magically
make water come out.
Once you have most of the liquid squeezed out place it in a bowl.
I had saved some of the original cauliflower and we did a comparison.
Next add 1/4 cup of egg whites,
and a half cup of cheese.
Sprinkle in a teaspoon of italian herbs and some pepper.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and
flatten it out.
Put it in the oven (at 450F) for 18 minutes.
Remove and sprinkle on another 1/2 cup of cheese.
Finish baking another 5 minutes.
Put it under the broiler till golden brown.
All that is left is to cut and eat.
Most of the children tried it and liked it.
I think because of the cheesy flavour.
