First off I have say, I know this doesn’t sound very exciting. Cauliflower, roasted, with cheese on it. But hear me out. Its actually, it’s pretty dang good. Think roasted potatoes, roasted with lots of garlic and Parmesan cheese, only lower in carbs. This would actually be a great alternative to mashed potatoes or another potato dish at Thanksgiving. Plus, it couldn’t be any easier. It is quick to cook and the prep work is minimal.
Sea salt, pepper and freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
3/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil and cauliflower. Make sure to evenly coat. Add the garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg and stir. Pour into a baking dish.
Bake for 25 minutes and remove. Add Parmesan cheese and place back in the oven for 5 minutes. You could broil the dish on low for a few minutes to crisp up the top if desired.
Remove from oven and serve.
I know this sounds like a lot of garlic, and it is! Which is another reason this simple dish was so wonderful. However, if you’re not worried about keeping the vampires away, I guess it won’t hurt my feelings if you only use 2 cloves. Or 3.
For a low carbohydrate, fally veggie dish, you really can’t go wrong with this. Plus, you probably already have the olive oil and seasonings, so buying 3 ingredients isn’t bad either!
