It must be that time of year. I’m craving stews, hotpots, curry and I’m craving a health-kick, and I want it all now. This one-pot healthy cauliflower bake recipe takes care of it all!
I love one-pot recipes! They are real timesavers, require minimal effort while cutting down on the washing-up too. Also cooking everything together at once allows the ingredients and flavours to meld and complement each other creating a pot of utter deliciousness.
This one-pot healthy cauliflower bake recipe is just so good. To make it even better I added tahini and yoghurt dressing to enhance all the flavours. If tahini doesn't tickle your fancy, try almond butter or sunflower seeds butter, they both work well.
Cauliflower is the main stair obviously. Just like broccoli, cauliflower is made up of multiple small, packed flower heads which can be used in salads or as crudites for dips.
You will also need cherry tomatoes, purple onions, spinach and loads of spices.This is one tasty, nutritious dish that will become quickly a firm favourite. You can add other veggies such as courgette, peppers, sweetcorn or even olives or artychokes.
Did you know that if you steam or blanch cauliflower it’ll often go soft and mushy, but by roasting it, you bring out its sweetness? Well the proof is in the pudding, but you gotta make it 🙂 Just don't burn it 🙂
I love cauliflower, it's nature's superfood and has many nutrients, minerals as well as antioxidants that help to reduce inflammation and protect against several diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.The WHFoods recommends eating cauliflower on a very regular basis to keep your heart and body in tip-top condition.
