Who says that cauliflower is only good enough to be a side dish?

The cauliflower is super easy to roast, while the romesco sauce might require a bit more attention and it's so worth it. It has a delightful red pepper flavor, made even more delicious by the paprika, garlic, almonds, and chili flakes. How about lettuce cups? They're super big in flavor, very filling, and also easy to customize if you want to tone this up or down at all. Enjoy it as your main, serve it up as an appetizer, or eat them for a quick lunch.
Though it looks and tastes like a beautiful gourmet meal, it's actually pretty simple to make at home. You just need chickpeas, olive oil, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, cayenne, mint, carrots, and some fresh ground pepper. You decide whether you want to pick up some hummus and za'atar from the supermarket or if you want to make it from scratch.
Prefer your cauliflower in liquid form? Try this cauliflower soup recipe from The First Mess. It's creamy and satisfying without being overpowering.

Stir in the broth…. And cook it over medium heat until it thickens, about minutes or so. And now? And now. And now! Things are about to get serious: Add 4 ounces of softened cream cheese. Then stir in salt and pepper….
Seasoned salt and paprika. Tremendously yummy! Another thing you need for the casserole is cheese! I used Monterey Jack, but you can use cheddar, cheddar-jack, even Parmesan or Romano…anything goes. And finally, put some seasoned breadcrumbs into a bowl, add some melted butter…. To assemble the casserole, add half the broccoli and cauliflower to a small casserole dish….
Then pour on half the sauce.
Actually used a little less than half, as I wanted the sauce to coat the veggies but not just totally take over. Next comes a layer of cheese…. And, just for kicks, a sprinkling of paprika. Now, another layer! And cheese, baby. Now, this is where I stopped and this is where you can stop, too, if you want to make it ahead of time , covered the dish, and popped it in the fridge overnight. I also popped the breadcrumbs in the fridge overnight, and this morning, I just sprinkled them right over the cheese. Then I baked it at for about 35 minutes! Hot, bubbly, delicious. The house smells so darn good right now.
The veggies are nice—I like the small florets. And the sauce is creamy and rich, but not heavy and gloopy. A dreamy side dish for Thanksgiving…or for any night of the week.

Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole
This is a great do ahead for Thursday. I might just skip the turkey and eat this!! I had this casserole 40 years ago and loved it, but never got the recipe from the person who made it. Thank you for posting it! Happy Thanksgiving!!! This sounds very good! As always, I love your plates and serving dishes, Ree. Always so colorful and pretty.
This looks delicious!! I tried to print the recipe for tonight, however…. This looks delicious. However I am not sure how much broth to add or how much cheese? Did it say somewhere that I am not seeing? Thank you. I saw a similar recipe this morning which I planned to try—the ingredients are in my car right now as I wait for my son to finish basketball practice. However, plans have now changed and I going to make your version! Looks great. Love the serving dishes as always!
