BosGuy cooks cauliflower

BosGuy cooksCauliflower is affordable to buy and very healthy, but people seem to rarely purchase it.  I have a quick, easy recipe that is great as a side dish or snack that takes 20 minutes to make.

Ingredients: head of Cauliflower, 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, handful of grated Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and salt.

BosGuy cooksCut the cauliflower florets and put them in a pan with only a little olive oil over medium low heat. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and pepper then cover.

Let the vegetable cook for a few minutes to soften then put the cauliflower into a glass oven-safe container and sprinkle 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and roughly half that amount of grated Parmesan cheese.  Cover the cauliflower with foil so the moisture won’t escape and bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 15 minutes. Then remove foil and let it cook for another 5 minutes.

BosGuy cooksI like to take out of the oven when they are slightly golden. Let them cool slightly and eat them like on would popcorn (you’ll need napkins) or serve them as a side dish for dinner.

Did you know? Cauliflower is exceptionally rich in Vitamin C and also has a significant amount of Vitamin B-6 and Potassium.

  1. Sounds interesting. I have a friend who cooks it, then blends it in a food processor with a little milk and butter, and serves it in place of mashed potatoes.


  2. And if you’re doing low carb/Paleo/Primal, you can even make pizza dough from it. Doesn’t taste like actual pizza, of course, but it’s really good.


  3. You can also boil it, mash it and add some butter, salt and pepper to it. Works rather well that way too.


  4. Gotta try this! I like caulifower raw but this sounds inviting.
