Oven Roasted Cauliflower Casserole with Cheese

caluliflower-bake-02

Cauliflower belongs the Brassicaceae (Cruciferous) family of vegetables and is often overshadowed by its popular cousin broccoli. This awesome vegetable deserves a regular rotation in your diet because it contains a remarkable array of nutrients, including minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and other phytochemicals.

Cauliflower’s appeal gets better due to its extreme versatility. You can eat it raw, add it to salads, or use it in your cooking like this dish. Cauliflower can even be seasoned and mashed for a healthier version of “mashed potatoes“.

Here is a list of the top health benefits of cauliflower:

Low in Carbs

Fights Cancer

Boost Heart Health

It’s Anti-Inflammatory

It’s Rich in Vitamins and Minerals

Boost Your Brain Health

Digestive Benefits

Antioxidants and Phytonutrients Galore

This dish is extremely low carb, low fat, and only 4 Weight Watchers points per serving.

I used a sharp Backstein German cheese but any cheese will do. Just go easy on the cheese as the calories, fat and points will increase with more cheese content.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
