Cauliflower! An absolutely amazing vegetable that is versatile as your imagination. This wonderful nightshade veggie (is great for gut health and provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.)  You can grill it, bake it, mash it, fry it, and boil it! Additionally, cauliflower is a great source of cell-supporting folate, vitamins C & K. It is fat-free and cholesterol free and also low in sodium. What’s not to love about cauliflower?

This recipe comes together relatively easily and takes about 50 minutes of total cooking time plus about 10 extra minutes for prep. You can definitely eat this all by itself as a main dish or as a side.

One thought on “Herbed Whole Baked Cauliflower”

  1. This is a blue ribbon winner hands down. I enjoyed it recently as a main dish at a dinner party on one occasion and cut into small servings as an appetizer with wine at another. The topping just explodes deliciousness in your mouth. A must for any vegan’s recipe box.
