Meatless Mondays! Cauliflower-Carrot Casserole

Today's idea for meatless Mondays is a Cauliflower-Carrot Casserole that is made with onions, garlic, horseradish, and delicious crunchy breadcrumbs on top. I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and my husband and I really enjoyed it. It has a slight horseradish flavor to it that isn't overwhelming and it pairs nicely with a salad. When we had this for dinner we paired it with a Cranberry-Pecan Salad and the Caramelized Onion and Portobello  Mushroom Soup. We did have the Onion and Portobello Soup
and the Cranberry Pecan salad for our belated Thanksgiving dinner along with some pretty great dinner rolls (recipes coming soon). We had cranberry pecan dinner rolls and some basic dinner rolls which both were fluffy and easy to eat to many. This recipe might be interesting with some broccoli or a mix of yellow and red onions added in.
