Cauliflower With Campbell’s Tomato Soup Sauce
I’m gonna try this again as I was just about ready to post this when my computer decided to shut itself down all by itself and when I got it back up, all that was left was the title, GRRR!
Well on a much better note, we were finally blessed with some absolutely beautiful weather for the last week; hence no work got done here, but some much needed painting outside that had gotten put on the back burner this spring, finally got a great start! Kenny’s been staining the outside and I have been getting a fresh coat of paint on our front deck. Granddaughter will be happy, as she politely informed me that my porch was dry-rotted and in actuality, all it was suffering from was a lack of paint!!!
Of course there was no offer to come help these poor old feeble folks, ha ha!
Well this recipe today stemmed from another recipe I read and with a few changes, we incorporated Kenny’s wonderful tomato soup recipe. Husband was a little hesitant about what I was fixing, but after trying it, we will indulge again as it would go great with ham or maybe some pork chops, YUM.
- 1 head of cauliflower, separated into florettes
- 1 can Campbell's condensed tomato soup
- ½ can milk
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- ½ to 1 cup of grated American or cheddar cheese (I used sharp cheddar)
- Steam cauliflower in salted water until desired tenderness, we like ours on the crispy side; drain and keep warm.
- While cauliflower is cooking, pour soup into a medium saucepan along with the milk and butter.
- Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until butter is melted and the soup looks kinda silvery on top (Kenny's description).
- At this point, add the desired amount of cheese and stir until cheese is melted.
- Serve atop of the cauliflower and garnish with parsley.
As today is Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would just add a recipe for you to enjoy. Corona Beer Marinade is excellent and with BBQ season here, a great recipe for cooking meats on the grill. If you go there, you will also see links to other great Mexican recipe ideas like Mexican Rub for ribs. So with that, I hope you enjoy and hopefully I will be back this week with more for you to enjoy!
