I tried quincy’s cauliflower trick today with a few mods of my own. Q already went through the basics, so I will just comment quickly on what I did differently.
First and foremost is the secret ingredient: Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup.
Q and baidawi once advised me to use this as a cheese sauce stretcher in macaroni pie and lasagna. I haven’t made a cheese sauce without it since. It adds a good thickness to your sauce, and a rich taste. It’s available with less sodium…look for the green tin.
You will find out over time that I like to pack my food up with plenty ingredients. Cooking with fewer ingredients is good when you want to savor the flavor of one main ingredient, but…I’m de fella who must take everything with a Subway, for the taste explosion. So I ended up with this. Cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and tomato. I decided to leave out the corn because I didn’t think there’d be enough space for the sauce.
