Sometimes it’s a lot easier to eat something good if you can’t tell what it is. That can either mean changing the texture or the taste. Buffalo cauliflower is a good example of changing the taste.
Recently, my wife discovered something rather unusual in the frozen vegetable section of the local supermarket – Bird’s Eye Buffalo Cauliflower. Since I seem to have a taste for spicy foods like spicy roasted Brussels Sprouts, she figured we’d give it a try.
As you can see, they are pretty good for you (except for the sodium). Simply follow the directions on the bag for microwave cooking and you’ve got a quick spicy side dish for your meal.
They were reasonably spicy – which I have become quite used to by now. However, if your fussy eater hasn’t taken to hot food, this may not go over well. On the other hand, if you’ve got one that loves hot wings, this may be just they way to get them to eat cauliflower.
In all honesty, I have found that I actually like cauliflower – more so than broccoli. We have even made pizza with a cauliflower crust once. I’ll have to post that one sometime. It does a good job of disguising both the texture and taste of cauliflower.
If you haven’t tried cauliflower, and like spicy food, be sure to pick up some of Bird’s Eye’s Buffalo Cauliflower. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It definitely pleased this fussy eater.
