Weekend Gardener

It’s September and time to start fall fall gardens in my state. Since I am moving – I am repurposing an old flower bed into a small garden. But what to plant ? And while I am working on plans – I am celebrating National Cheese Pizza Day with a yummy recipe ..Lisa

In September, Louisiana gardeners can safely plant seeds for beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, Chinese cabbage, collards, endive, escarole, onions, shallots for bulbs, lettuce (both head and leaf), kale, mustard, parsley, snow peas, English peas, radish, rutabaga, rhubarb and turnips.

Sweet corn, Irish potatoes and bush snap beans can be seeded in south Louisiana, and north Louisiana can start spinach in September.

Califlower Cheese Pizza :

1 head cauliflower, stalk removed

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

2 eggs, lightly beaten 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Steam in a steamer basket and drain well. (I like to put it on a towel to get all the moisture out.) Let cool.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with the mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, salt, garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a circle, resembling a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Add desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes.https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/katie-lee/cauliflower-pizza-crust-2651381
