Dusty Cauliflower

"A great way to dress up cauliflower and for a change of pace how about "Dusty Musrooms". Simply replace the cauliflower with 4 cups of fresh mushrooms, cut in halves or quarters and adjust cooking time if necessary. This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite healthier cookbooks==Oat Cuisine."

  1. Very delicious side dish. Made in next to no time, and good for you, too. I served this with grilled steaks and caramelized onions. A repeat for sure.
  2. Cauliflower has climbed up my favorite veggie ladder & is solidly in 2nd place (2nd only to eggplant) now that I am finding ways to make it that are full of flavor. This dish also has the advantage of being low-cal & low-fat at a time we are trying to be more conscious of these things. This was well-received by DH when served along side spiced-up fish fillets & a fruit dessert, and DH did not notice his much-favored potatoes were absent from the table again. :-) Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
  3. This is my first 1,2,3 hit wonders recipe, I just started playing today and I loved this recipe. I made the recipe for two people and thought it was wonderful. A little carby for a diabetic but hey we all have to live sometimes.
  4. I adopted this recipe for Pick A Chef '06, and I wasn't disappointed. My family loves cauliflower but gets bored with it when it is just steamed. So, I am always looking for different, tasty ways to prepare it. Paula, this was delicious. The flavor combinations complimented, but didn't overpower the cauliflower. The best part was that I was in and out of the kitchen in a hurry. Also, I used your seasoned breadcrumb mix (recipe #102062), which by the way is much better than anything purchased at the store. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
