Do it. I've decided cauliflower is too useful in too many ways to not have it on hand at all times. It doesn't hold too much flavor on it's own, which makes it a fabulous blank, but nutritious canvas for a LOT of creative dishes.
From my reading, cauliflower is an excellent source of Vitamin C and Manganese... both of which are HIGHLY beneficial in fighting stress, therefore battling certain cancers AND it's chocked full of Vitamin K, one of the BEST regulators to our body's inflammatory response. Dad! Anti-inflammatory! Get crackin' on this crunchy goodness! :)
- 1 head cauliflower, green stems and leaves removed, roughly chopped
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1/4 almond meal
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- extra-virgin olive oil
- sea salt
- pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet, warm up a little olive oil and toss in the diced onion and roughly chopped cauliflower florets. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until the onions are almost translucent. While that's cooking, sprinkle a little sea salt on the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish and then spread the cottage cheese along the bottom.
sweet potato lovin' meatloaf or all on it's own! I ate it for dinner last night by itself and it's fabulously filling and delicious. And lo and behold.. I'm SO not stressed today! ;) (chuckle chuckle chuckle... but really)
HAPPY WEEKEND! How's about you add a little crunch to your day.
