Yes, I admit it. I am a cauliflower geek. I love using it to make new recipes. It is a great lower-carb base for many entrees. I'm trying a new Cauliflower Soup this week!
But, if you're looking for a healthier version of a loaded baked potato, give this recipe a try! This recipe is 21 Day Fix-compliant and also 21 Day Sugar Detox-ready!
Loaded Cauliflower Bake
1 large head of cauliflower, broken down into florets
1-1/2 tbsp. organic butter
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or canned coconut milk)
Small red onion, peeled and diced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, divided
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
1/2 tbsp. dried parsley
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Steam chopped cauliflower in the microwave, along with butter and 1/4 cup of water for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until fork-tender. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Combine steamed cauliflower, coconut milk, onion, half of the parmesan cheese, and all spices except for parsley in a Ninja or similar-style blender. Puree until smooth.
Pour cauliflower puree into 9" x 9" glass baking dish that has been coated with organic cooking spray.
Top with remainder of parmesan cheese, chopped bacon, and dried parsley.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until heated through and slightly browned on top.
(21 Day Fix: 1 green, 1 tsp., 1 blue, 1/2 a red.)
Enjoy! Would love to hear if you try this.
ALL THE BEST,
