Cauliflower Parmesan

Hey Cauliflower Lovers,

I’ll bet you didn’t know that aside from tasting good and being so versatile, cauliflower loves you back.

  • Cauliflower has to fight hard to get your attention, unless you buy this kind.
  • It just doesn’t have the sex appeal that broccoli has, and it’s not a trend setter like kale, but it’s gaining ground.
  • But, it’s always been around and is easily found everywhere.
  • Cauliflower is versatile and healthy. It also keeps for a fairly long time in your fridge.
  • Cauliflower is white, almost bland looking and it can’t tell you it contains sulforaphane, which has been now to kill cancer stem cells.

I’m no doctor or scientist, but every article I read about cauliflower has boasted these health beneifits of cauliflower.

  • Cauliflower is anti-inflammatory, the biggest buzz word around, because this is connected our immune system and so many diseases.
  • Cauliflower has choline, which boosts brain health.
  • Cauliflower contains properties that aid digestion.
  • Cauliflower is high in antioxidants.

These are all good reasons to consider cauliflower a super food and for a home cook like me, I want to add something to the superfood category. Cauliflower is easy to prepare and versatile.

I have been making cauliflower for a very long time, and just stumbled on this little idea for lunch last week.  It fits that low-carb thing that I try to adhere to at least when I’m not out in restaurants gorging on pork belly pop tarts. (that’s true).

So tell me, do you have an extra good cauliflower recipe. Please leave link in the comments. I’m sure to come visit you.

The Cooking Process for Cauliflower Parmesan

This is the healthy version. You could bread, fry and top with sauce and cheese and have old school cauliflower parmesan (similar to eggplant parmesan), and I might just come back with that recipe.

This the easier, friendlier version, perfect for lunch or a side dish. If you want a vegan version of this, try cauliflower steaks.

    I have just started to eat cauliflower having been diagnosed diabetic, I started with Broccolli but soon found it easier to grow my own cauli`s.
    I have a great recipe for using either one or both:
    1. chop into florets and steam for 9 mins.
    2. Put into processer and add, cream goats cheese,about 200grams, same of grated hard cheese, I prefer Chedder.
    3. Blitz until it looks like a puree.
    4. put into a tupperware and leave in the fridge until needed.
    5. Serve with an Iced cream scoop, 1 or 2 dollops either cold or heat up if you must.
    Great with anything, but especially tomato based sauces.
