*Cauliflower Puff* (GF)

Purple Cauliflower at the Portland Farmers Market.


This looks impressive for a lowly vegetable dish.  Can you imagine a purple cauliflower?  Somehow I don't think it would look right in this recipe!  Amazing!  I haven't made this side dish in a while but I remember it was lovely.

1 large head cauliflower
Cheese Sauce, (recipe in post before this)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
1/8 tsp pepper (0.5 mL)
4 eggs
1/4 tsp lemon juice (1 mL)
1/8 tsp paprika (0.5 mL)
Break cauliflower into florets.  In large casserole dish, place cauliflower and a little water.  Microwave on high power 9 minutes or just until tender.  Drain well.  Place in greased 9 x 13-inch (3 L) glass dish.  Prepare Cheese Sauce, page 88.  Add extra salt and pepper to Cheese Sauce (see ingredients above).

In food processor or electric mixer, beat egg whites with lemon juice until stiff.  Add egg yolks one at a time, while beating until thick and creamy.  Fold egg mixture into Cheese   and pour over cauliflower.  Sprinkle with paprika and bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 20 minutes.
