It seems like cauliflower is popping up in the lieu of potatoes all over the place these days. I'll admit, I was resistant to the idea at first. However, when I saw the picture of this one, I thought it was worth a shot. I had a little piece of one and it was really delicious...like potato pancakes only with a creamier texture inside. The original recipe is at A Good Appetite and her pictures do way more justice than mine do. One of these days, I'm going to figure out how to be a better food photographer. Until then though, at least they're good enough to tell if things have gone horribly awry mid-recipe :) lol.
