I have an extremely picky eater at my household. You have probably heard me mention that my son won’t eat a vegetable that is out in the open, and that I have to sneak them into his food. You also have heard me mention my Hubby’s disdain for cauliflower. And, I must confess that I don’t really enjoy cauliflower raw or plain. So this is another sneaky, veggie infused, recipe that my son and my hubby loved. My son actually scarfed it down, no questions asked. Probably because there was not anything green colored in this one. Usually, he asks “what did you put in this?”  My older kids loved it too. Because it is baked in the oven and the cauliflower is not steamed or boiled, you are not going to get that very strong odor throughout the house. Only a slight odor inside the oven. I did tell them what was in it, after they scarfed it down, and they still wanted seconds. I was so happy to get them enjoying cauliflower. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that has anti-cancerous properties, excellent fiber content, contains antioxidants, and is anti-inflammatory!

Dump the cauliflower batter into prepared loaf pan:

  2. Was all set to make this… But ingredient list says 2/3 c cauliflower and directions say 1 cup.. How much ground cauliflower goes in the recipe?
    Thanks!

    • Jessica, the 1 cup is a typo, it is 2/3 cup ground cauliflower like in the ingredient list. Thank you for letting me know. I think I need new reading glasses.

  3. Is there any way to do this with frozen cauliflower? I stocked up on it recently, and hate to ignore it and go buy fresh. Watching money and all. Thanks!!!

    • Deanna, I don’t see why you could not use frozen cauliflower. Just defrost it, then rice it or process in food processor, and then wrap in a paper towel or cheese cloth to squeeze some of the extra water out from freezing. May not have do that step if the cauliflower seems somewhat dry, but do it if its a little watery. let me know how it goes.
      Sincerely,
      Stacey

    • Beth, I have not tried almond meal. But I think it could work, but use one whole cup of almond flour or meal and possibly one less egg. Not sure though.

    • Mary, Yes you need to refrigerate this, as with all preversative free breads. I will add that to the post, if I forgot to mention that. In the fridge, it should be good for about 4 to 5 days. I have a big family, so it never lasts that long, lol.
      Sincerely,
      Stacey
