Greek Cauliflower

Greek Cauliflower created by Nimz_

A twist on cheese sauce for cauliflower. Nice tangy taste of feta and richness of eggs. NOTE: I re-wrote the instructions more clearly. There is NO hot sauce in this, as mentioned by one reviewer. It called for whisking 1/2 cup OF THE HOT CHEESE sauce, NOT 1/2 cup hot sauce. :)

    Good but needs something. I may add the cayenne pepper like Nancy's Pantry commented on in her review. I baked it and then put it on the broiler to toast it a bit. ZWT9 Made for the Gourmet Goddesses July 2013.

    Great dish. To save on fat grams, I added a couple of dashes of EVOO instead of the butter as well as using 1/2 cup of egg substitute. I also took the suggestion of a previous reviewer and added some dried dill. The only thing that didn't work for me is that I thought that the feta taste was a bit too subtle. I like the strong "briny" flavor of feta and the flavor seemed a bit lost in the sauce. But that is a minor point. Perhaps cutting back on the milk and increasing the amount of feta in the sauce would be a better fit for me. Looking forward to trying this again. Thanks for posting!

    The only change I made was to add a little chopped fresh dill to the sauce. This was very, very good. For us cauliflower lovers, this is a winner. Thanks for posting.

    Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables and I'm happy to be able to add this to my go-to recipes. Next time I think I might add a little more spice such as cayenne maybe. Tonight was veggie night and this casserole made a nice contribution to the meal. Made for ZWT9, July, 2013.
