Cauliflower Taco Bake

Cauliflower Taco Bake
I wanted a easy casserole to throw together earlier in the day and bake later. This Cauliflower Taco Bake fit the bill and provided us with a tasty dinner with very little effort. There is a lot of cheese in this dish but it is awfully convenient to have a one dish meal that contains the meat and veggies in the same dish.

This recipe has you blanch the cauliflower. I chose to steam the cauliflower instead. I have an electric veggie steamer that I could have used but instead I chose to steam in the microwave using my Epicure Multipurpose Steamer to make the process a bit quicker tonight. Either way works well 🙂
