What is a Quenelle¿Counter Intelligence

A quenelle is a light, delicate dumpling made of ground fish, chicken or veal, bound together with eggs or bread crumbs and milk. This mixture is formed into small ovals, and gently poached in stock.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a very large bowl, combine cauliflower and garlic. Add oil, salt, black pepper, and, if desired, crushed red pepper; toss to coat cauliflower.
Spread cauliflower mixture in the prepared baking pan. Roast for 15 minutes. Stir. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes more or until edges are brown and cauliflower is crisp-tender. Toss with Green Pea Pesto just before serving.
Green Pea Pesto
In a food processor, combine peas; parsley leaves; basil; mint; water; Parmesan cheese; shallot; lemon juice; salt; pepper; and, if desired, cayenne pepper. Cover and pulse until desired consistency, adding more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Makes about 3/4 cup.
