Cheesy Cauliflower Patties

Vegetables are really not my forte – and cauliflower especially. Though I’m trying to get better, I promise. So when I found a recipe for some cheesy cauliflower patties, I decided to tweak it a bit to see if I could make them even more up my alley.

First, I grabbed a big head of cauliflower and chopped off the florets, and started them boiling in some water, along with the onion. Then I grabbed some other flavors that I felt would go well in this particular dish: Bell peppers and cheese.

Specifically I used one of those shredded “Mexican Blends”, and added a dash of Asiago, just to give it a little kick. The pepper I chose was orange, because I thought I’d try my hand at being color-coordinated. If you like other colors, then it should work fine, and the color is unlikely to change the taste.

For those that measure precise-like, my apologies, but I didn’t measure along the way, though I will include my best guess. I know the cauliflower and eggs were right, and you can always customize to your liking in any case.

Old Time Fried Zucchini

One of my favorite veggies (or fruits, perhaps – I’ll leave that argument for you) is the zucchini. Of course, it’s probably because I usually fry it. But I still really like those zukes. This simple recipe is not only easy to make, it’s messy fun and it doesn’t require much in the way of fancy preparation.

Start with the zucchini. Slice them into whatever size chunks you’d like to eat. I typically create thin cross-slices, but you could just as easily make chunks or slice it long-wise. For our family of four, about a zuke and a half does the trick. One is too little and two is often too much.
