Cauliflower in the fridge...need to make an appetizer... hmmm what to do... I KNOW! Mini Cauliflower Souffles.
Perfect, quick and easy, very tasty too! This recipe makes about 12 muffin size souffles.

Half a cauliflower, grated
2 tablespoons of buttermilk (or heavy cream, or milk)
4 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon of basil
1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 tablespoon of Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 375. In a bowl, whip the egg whites until fluffy and peaks form. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and add the rest of the ingredients. Add the mixture to the egg whites and fold together with a spoon or spatula. butter or spray the muffin tins with baking spray, then fill them with the cauliflower mix 3/4 of the way and pop in the oven. 

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. They are delicious and a great way to make kids eat their veggies. These little bites are great for parties, light and fluffy with a great taste.
