When you crave the creaminess of mashed potatoes blended with sour cream and butter, but still want something a little lighter and a lot faster, reach for a bag of frozen cauliflower.

Recipe: Creamy Braised Cauliflower with Sun-Dried TomatoesRecipes
Braising is not just for carnivores. Although I do enjoy a good pot roast, I love braising vegetables, and feel this is often the best way to play up their flavors. The other advantage of vegetarian braises? They are much, much quicker than meat. For example, this cauliflower gets browned in olive oil and garlic, letting a thin golden crust form on its firm white stalks.

Breadcrumbs usually lie like a lazy blanket on top of pasta or casseroles.

Cauliflower and breadcrumbs alone can be bland, so I added flavor by first roasting the cauliflower in the oven. Do be sure to take the time to cut the cauliflower into tiny, bite-sized florets.
