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 HealthySnackGirl.com
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!
