Looks delicious for anyone. If I can find cauliflower at a reasonable price, I might make it to bring to the second seder. Thanks!

Looks great. I like the idea of the nut topping.

We are also going to try just steaming the cauliflower and combining all the vegetables, herbs, eggs and matzo in a food processor to make a more finer consistency kugel so if feels more like a potato one.

you could just add a smidge of potato starch instead of the matzoh in the food processor and get the right consistency and save some carbs. also a vitamix would give an even finer texture than the processor

I would worry that a Vitamix would give too fine a puree if you're not careful. It's nice to have a little bit of texture. But YMMV.

Pulse a few times in a processor for cauliflower couscous.    Grate on a coarse grater and saute for faux-home fries.     Grate on fine grater, saute with curry powder.    Parboil the whole head, rub with olive oil and roast in very hot oven until browned.  

 

(or microwave flowerets and dunk in Velveeta thinned with milk.  :ph43r: )

We do have a vitamix but we don't keep potato starch around. We happened to have a little matzo meal because we were handed the "assignment" of bringing a side dish.

 

The 1/4 cup of matzo meal to that much vegetable content and eggs is pretty small considering this feeds probably 8-10 people. And we don't eat very big portions anymore anyway. :)

The hostess at the Passover seder I went to made a cauliflower kugel, and it was really good.  It was very close to a traditional kugel--no nuts on top or anything like that.

A nice side benefit to this kugel is the same mixture, with more egg, matzo meal and some cheese makes great latkes. That's what we did with the leftover kugel, we just mixed it up with egg, matzo meal and cheese and fried it up.

It was better than the kugel, actually. Then again anything with a ton of cheese fried in bacon fat...
