Skillet Cauliflower Parmesan

Shopping List

  • Small head of Cauliflower
  • Butter
  • EVOO
  • Parmesan
  • Breadcrumbs or pork rinds
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Basil

Gather Your Ingredients

If you don’t have any keto friendly breadcrumbs on hand, I’ve dried out and toasted a few slices of this brand and make my own breadcrumbs.

Pork Rinds are also a good alternative. Place in ziplock bag, release all the air out. Roll over pork rinds with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbles.

Let’s Get Started

Preheat the over to 425°. Prepare a sheet pan with foil and coat with oil. Chop cauliflower into large florets.

In a bowl, combine cauliflower florets, melted butter, and EVOO. Add 1/4 up each of parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat.

Spread on prepared pan. Roast in over for 30 – 35 minutes until the florets are toasty brown and tender to touch with a fork.

On the stove, heat a pan to medium high heat. Add cauliflower and marinara sauce. Toss to coat and heat until sauce is bubbly.

Rao’s sauce is low in sugar and has a great taste. I have found this brand in Walmart and recently at Costco.

Top with rest of parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Simmer until cheese is melted or place under broiler until cheese is melted.

Top with basil and serve. Serve with noodles. I prefer the noodle alternative Healthy Noodle (see below).

Steak & Cauliflower Casserole

When you think of a casserole dish, you think of a protein and pasta, amirite? I usually do, too. Until for a health concern I needed to reduce the amount of carbs and sugars. But what would I do without all my creamy, cheesy pasta favorites?

Enter my new favorite vegetable friend – the Cauliflower. This little gem is so versatile! It can be a substitute for rice, potatoes and did you even know…pasta?! That’s right – it tastefully replaces pasta in this dish. You won’t even know it.

Shopping List

  • 1 pound Shaved Beef Steak (found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce
  • 8 oz. crimini mushrooms
  • 1 package or jar of Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • Baby Spinach
  • Italian Cheese

Gather The Ingredients

Let’s Get Started

Prepare the cauliflower for roasting. Chop up into bite size pieces. In a bowl, mix with oil, salt and garlic. Spread on baking sheet and place in pre-heated oven. Cauliflower should be lightly browned and tender.

I like to season the beef with steak seasoning. Cook up meat while cauliflower is roasting.

After the cauliflower is roasted and the meat is browned, mix everything in a bowl. Spread in a baking pan and bake for 20 minutes.

Dinner is Served

I just love dishes you can slide out of the oven and take to the table so you can enjoy catching up with the family.

This dish would go great with a salad, or is fulfilling all on it’s own.
