So that inspired me to try to remember a pinterest recipe (because i never actually pin things I'm going to make, I only pin pretty stuff).
The recipe I was attempting with no more info than what's in my crazy scattered mind mind was cauliflower croquetts. I even took my ipad into the kitchen but after 1 drop of olive oil got on it, i freaked out and ditched the recipe (welcome to my world).
So here's what I ended up doing....
I threw some olive oil and chopped up garlic in a pot.
Meanwhile i got a whole bag of cauliflower from the freezer and defrosted it in the microwave. I actually ended up steaming it.
I got a big spoon and scooped the mashed up mess onto some tin foil and put it into my preheated to 400 deg oven for a while.
Honestly i don't even remember how long. We'll say like 20 min? I think I checked on them after 15 min.
Anyhow, they came out this lovely golden color. Still pretty much together (and it's only the cauliflower, olive oil and garlic). They reminded me of hash browns. But because it's just a vegetable I thought it would be okay to dip them in ranch dressing. like the good kind.
Thank you pinterest for another almost real recipe I totally didn't follow.
