Cauliflower needs to be Blanched

Cauliflower needs to be 'Blanched' even if the self-blanching type.  I use a small clamp with rubber tips.
Simply pull up closest leaves and overlap them to totally cover the new-forming head. Don't worry the leaves are pretty tough to handle it.

If not  blanched, the sun will darken the head and flavor is not as delectable.

here's the result, a nice white head.

Although I love the cheese sauce, a less caloric way to prepare is below:

Cauliflower chips:  recipe from

Slice florets in 1/4 inch slices.
Place in a bowl & drizzle with soy, sugar & oil.
Mix well to coat.
Place on foil-lined cookie sheet.
Bake in 400 deg. oven for about 20 min.
Flip over after 10 minutes.

These are so easy & so good!
