Garlic Cauliflower Puree with Greek Yogurt: A Dip, A Soup, A Sauce and Mashed Potatoes All in One!

Posted on Oct 28, 2012 in food porn | No Comments

Cauliflower is in season! And it will last us through the winter. One of my favorite vegetables–and so easy to prepare!

It’s that time of year! Pumpkins and squash and other delicious fall vegetables. Plus, it’s the time of year where everyone eschews the concept of “tacky neighbor” and decorates their house to high heaven (low hell?) with fake spider webs, bright orange (a color normally repulsive to the masses) and all sorts of evil witch-craftery […]

I had zucchini pasta first at my friend May‘s house a few weeks ago. I’d heard of the idea to intersperse pasta-cut veggies with actual pasta in order to get kids to enjoy their vegetables, but I’d never tried the veggie pasta myself. Having only eaten breakfast, I returned home from teaching Design I in […]
