Cauliflower or Romanesco for seitan cauliflower / romanesco casseroleI found this great Romanesco here at the farmer's market and I knew exactly what I would do with it. My mom used to cook cauliflower casserole and I loved this casserole. My mom's variant, however, includes ground meat and accordingly I had not eaten it for some time now. So I tried a vegan version. And I have to say, the bean-TVP mass was very similar in taste and texture to ground meat. In general, use cauliflower for this seitan cauliflower / romanesco casserole. If you get a great Romanesco, then try this recipe. Does it not look wonderful with the structure of the Romanesco? It's like a plant from a different planet. At first I was a little worried if the mass dissolved into the sauce. However, I had no reason for my fears. It is just important to bake it prior. This seitan cauliflower / romanesco casserola also convinced my little daughter.
