Recipe: Cheesy Cauliflower and Peas

Published May 3, 2013 9:03 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling
Now that the chilly weather is finally beginning to break and the sweet smell of spring is in the air, it is the perfect time to visit your local farmer's market and see what is in season. From time to time on this blog I explore the juicy world of fresh fruits and vegetables and in the process, educate myself and others about how to: 1. BUY SEASONAL PRODUCE and 2. COOK SEASONAL PRODUCE.

The website, offers extensive lists of both vegetables and fruits that are in season during the month of May. Shopping and cooking in season is a wonderful way to save money and eat fresh! Using some of the suggested veggies on the seasonal lists above, here is a wonderful side dish that your little ones could easily help you make and will enjoy eating, especially if they love cheese!


Recipe: Cheesy Cauliflower and Peas


You will need:

1 small can of Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

1/2 cup milk

Minced garlic

1 (20 ounce) bag frozen cauliflower florets, thawed

1 cup finely grated Swiss cheese

1/4 cup cooked crumbled bacon

1 cup of peas (if frozen, let them thaw a bit)


Recipe Steps:

(The bacon needs to be cooked prior to adding it to this recipe. Baking it in the oven at 400 degrees on a long pan with tin foil underneath the bacon to catch the grease is my preferred way to do this. Cut the bacon in half and lay out the strips side-by-side on the pan. Using this method undoubtedly helps the bacon to cook evenly and gives it a nice crispy crunch.)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole pan with cooking spray or butter.

3. Pour the soup and milk in a bowl and stir.

4. Add in the garlic, cauliflower, peas and half of the Swiss cheese and mix everything together.

5. Pour into the greased casserole pan.

6. Sprinkle the top with the bacon and the remaining cheese.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and mixture is hot and bubbly.
