A Tale Of Two Cauliflowers #Vegetarian could be #Vegan

Actually, it was one cauliflower, two meals. See, I cut the core out of a head of cauliflower, put it (the head, not the core) on a microwaveable plate, cover it with a big bowl, and microwave it for 7 minutes. Then I cut it in half and cook one and save the other to cook another night. There’s just the two of us, after all.

Meal One:

Broke the cauliflower into florets, tossed them with olive oil, cumin, and Lawry’s seasoned salt. Roasted ’em at 400 for about 30 minutes(ish). Topped ’em with feta cheese.

Meal Two:

Broke the cauliflower into florets. Tossed them with Alfredo sauce, sliced olives, and shredded mixed Italian cheeses. Topped it with a couple of leftover slices of CoJack cheese and baked it until the cheese melted.

Both. So. Good.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Show a person behaving and looking very differently on two different occasions. If you can imply, without stating, the reason(s) for the difference(s), you’re golden!



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I like cauliflower, but I don’t like Feta cheese and I don’t like olives, so…boo

      Yeah, that’s a boo from you, all right. Man, if it had only been kale instead of cauliflower, I’d have had a perfect score.

    I thought black olives…but no you used green. I’m thinking that gave the dish a zing. 🙂

    I love cauliflower prepared with potatoes, and caramelized onions with lots of Indian spices. Allo Gobi. My favorite of all favorite cauliflower dishes. Wonder if He-Man wants Indian for lunch? See what you did! 🙂

      Charlie doesn’t like Indian spices. 🙁 I have to bung ’em on at the table just for me, but that isn’t nearly as nice as cooking them into the food.

    You must really like cauliflower to engender it with personality akin to having motivations and emotions requisite for the writing prompt!

      Oh, everything has personality with me. I feel sorry for skeeters’ families when I squish one. I tell scraps I put in the compost that they’re going on a wilderness adventure.
