Oven Baked Cauliflower


Cauliflower is low in calories, low-carb, high in fiber, and completely filling.  And while most of us think of citrus fruits as the best source of vitamin C, a cup of cauliflower florets –surprisingly- contains nearly 100% of the recommended daily allowance. Cauliflower also contains chemicals that protect against cancer.

During cauliflower season, you’ll see this simple dish on our dinner table several times a week.  We eat it as if it’s a carb, alongside a green vegetable and a protein source (usually chicken).  Since it’s just as good reheated as it is the first time around, we tend to bake two or three cauliflowers at a time.
