“Cauliflower is a versatile and super nutritious vegetable. It is a great source of vitamin C, protein, fiber, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and others. At the farmer’s market, look for different colors including, purple, green, and orange. The orange variety has added carotene and is 100 times richer in vitamin A than its pale cousin! Cauliflower can be used in place of rice, pasta, and potatoes in many recipes. I decided this gratin would taste a lot like a mac and cheese --- and I was right!” - Wendy Cannon, a cooking instructor at the Dr. Yum Project Kitchen
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Steam cauliflower florets in a steam basket for 10 minutes. Whisk egg, milk and olive oil together. Add in flour and spices, whisk until smooth. Fold in 1 cup colby-jack cheese. Add steamed cauliflower and coat well with sauce. Transfer mixture to a 2 quart casserole dish and bake for 35 minutes. While baking, mix ¼ c Parmesan cheese and parsley with breadcrumbs and a drizzle of olive oil. Remove casserole from oven, top with breadcrumb mixture and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
