So here’s the deal: I usually hate cauliflower. It’s like the red-headed step child next to broccoli. Sorry to offend any cauliflower enthusiasts, but it’s just how it goes.
I’ll even admit that I detest cauliflower rice (a huge sin in the Paleosphere). Probably the best cauliflower rice that I’ve tried was Nom Nom Paleo’s Fried Rice, but even that was hard for me to get excited about. Sorry guys, but my carb-addicted taste buds KNOW when you are trying to trick them. “You call this rice?! Take your incognito veggies else ware.”
Now having said all this, I’m sure you can appreciate the amount of deliciousness it would take for me to actually LOVE a crust recipe made out of cauliflower. Say what?! That’s crazy talk. I agree.
But when cauliflower is paired with cheese, suddenly it goes from tasteless florets to a whole bouquet of flavor and possibilities. Kinda like magic. Cauli-magic.
I prefer these cauliflower cheese sticks overcooked so that the cheese is almost burnt. The BF disagrees however, so I always have to plate his cheese sticks before popping mine back in the oven. Obviously he is deranged. Who doesn’t like burnt cheese? Deranged people, that’s who.
