Cauliflower Bake

Cauliflower is a vegetable people love or hate. The smell can be off putting but it is a very healthy vegetable. You can use it to replace carbs at a meal.  You can turn it into rice.  It is great fresh and eaten with a dip.(most Asian cultures don't like eating it raw though) You can serve it with a cheese sauce, like in the olden days.  It has a lot of qualities that I find people don't always appreciate. I love it but to get the others in my household to eat it, it has to be delicious. I am using it to replace a baked potato to go with a steak.
