CAULIFLOWER WITH CHEESE AND BACON

This easy roasted cauliflower is a super comforting low-carb meal, loaded with bacon and cheese.

Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in a rut, always cooking beef or chicken for dinner. Every now and then, I try to change things up and highlight a vegetable as the main focus of the dish, which also lets me explore seasonal vegetables.

I haven’t cooked with cauliflower in a while, so I decided to make a simple roasted cauliflower skillet with bacon and cheddar and it did not disappoint. The cauliflower florets were tender and tasty, and the cheddar and parmesan cheese mix with crumbled bacon was nothing short of amazing. This was also a really simple dish that I could whip up with just 10 minutes of prep time

This loaded cauliflower is a great example of how low carb dinners can be amazingly tasty. When most people who haven’t tried a low carb lifestyle (such as keto or Atkins induction phase) think about low carb foods, they generally think they’re supposed to eat salads and lettuce wraps all the time.

What they don’t realize is all of the delicious foods that are low in carbs, including any kind of protein (chicken, beef, pork, salmon, shrimp, bacon), cheese, and certain vegetables. This results in a ton of delicious combinations, and I’ve been having fun coming up with new low-carb dinners that are healthy as well as comforting. Eating low carb definitely doesn’t feel like you’re on a traditional diet.

Let’s talk ingredient substitutions. I can’t imagine wanting to replace the cauliflower, but you could substitute it with broccoli if you prefer. Just watch the cooking time. For the cheese, you can use any kind you want. I used a mix of shredded cheddar cheese, grated parmesan, and grated asiago cheese. I loved the blend of flavors and the cheese really stands out. The rest of the recipe’s ingredients are pretty simple, and if you want to add some spices and herbs, you can toss them with the cauliflower florets prior to baking.
