1/4 Photos of Baked Cucumbers With Cauliflower
This recipe was inspired by Baked Cucumbers by Traci & Jeff Poole1. Cucumbers make a lovely hot vegetable dish and maintain their crispness when baked. You may use them much like you would a Zucchini. In this recipe I used Cauliflower but other veggies would work equally well - Corn, Carrots & peas, just about anything. Try experimenting. This first time I didn't sprinkle with parmesan cheese but I will in the future. I hate wasting those lovely Cukes and this year they have gone crazy. This may be baked in your toaster oven.
