Cauliflower Casserole – Cauliflower Marranca

Mushroom Cauliflower Casserole

This Cauliflower Casserole, called Cauliflower Marranca, is from The Moosewood Cookbook. I first discovered this venerable cookbook by Mollie Katzen years ago when I was experimenting with vegetarianism.  Back then, the Moosewood Cookbook was a must have for every vegetarian. I may not have cooked the whole book, but I did cook a lot of recipes from it.
