Meatless Monday

Have you seen the show Worst Cooks in America? I’m obsessed with it. I watched the first season, missed the second, and got caught up on the third when Food Network had a marathon on the other weekend (if you haven’t seen the “tofu/tufu” bit you should probably stop reading this and Google/Bing it right now. Don’t worry, this blog is going nowhere, I urge you to take the next 45 seconds and watch the funniest thing you will ever see regarding tofu).  The dinner that one of the final cooks made had a side dish made with cauliflower and a poached egg.  It looked amazing and I knew I needed to make it for Meatless Monday! The recipe called for porcini mushrooms, but I couldn’t find any, so I used crimini. Still tasted delicious. I had some trouble making my poached egg look nice, but I think it’s because I used a pot instead of a pan. Next time I’ll use a pan and try to make it pretty!

Cauliflower. Mmmmm

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Slice the cauliflower into 1/2 inch thick slices and toss in olive oil and salt. Put on a baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. While the cauliflower is roasting, start making the mushrooms…..

Once the water reaches a boil, add in the white vinegar and reduce to a simmer. Carefully break an egg into the water and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove the egg using a slotted spoon and carefully dry on a paper towel. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
