Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Remove the leaves. Put the cauliflower head in a plastic bag.
  2. Mix together lemon juice, spices and yogurt. Pour over the cauliflower. Let sit in the fridge for at least an hour, or marinate overnight for maximum tastiness.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  4. Remove the cauliflower from the plastic bag and place in a baking dish.
  5. Bake for approximately 45–60 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft inside and has a nice color on the outside.
  6. Pour melted butter or oil on top, and sprinkle on finely chopped cilantro or parsley right before serving.

Tip!

If you’re in a hurry you can split the cauliflower into halves or quarters. Or even smaller sections. Just be sure to split them into roughly the same size florets so they cook evenly.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Sounds lovely. I am looking for vegetarian low carb recipes for my mum who is transitioning to LCHF and I think she would like this. Any ideas what would be a nice vegetarian accompaniment for this?

    How about some sliced, fried Haloumi-cheese? And maybe a nice bearnaise ore some other kind of sauce?

    I love roasted cauliflower and this sounds fantastic! I have used fresh chopped and powdered garlic and onion before and do add Tumeric to it but this takes it over the top. Yummm! Thank you for the wonderful idea!....my friends will thank you also.?

    You can try it in a skillet with a lid.
