These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
White Cheddar Cauliflower Bake -- Low Carb & Grain-Free
It was a chilly day here today. It was only 32 degrees when I headed to work this morning and it only made it up into the 50s. Quite a drastic drop from our 80 degree weather over the weekend where we got tricked into pulling out our shorts and flip-flops only to have to unpack the turtleneck sweaters again this morning! It felt like a pretty cruel joke Mother Nature played on us! For dinner tonight, I was in the mood for a little comfort food with our sudden cold snap. I had a small head of cauliflower in the fridge that needed to be used as well as a big block of sharp white cheddar cheese. I thought about making mashed cauliflower with white cheddar but decided to put together a quick little "skillet bake" with them instead. I created a simple White Cheddar Cauliflower Bake and baked it in a skillet. When hubby got home, he grilled some boneless chicken thighs that I lightly sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with Spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning. While he was grilling, I planned to make a green vegetable to go with our meal but realized I had some avocados that needed to be used...so the "green" on my plate became avocado (which is actually a fruit, not a vegetable). I snapped a few photos for you to see below and the recipe for the cauliflower bake. Enjoy!
In a medium bowl, beat cream, eggs, Parmesan, almond flour, mustard, salt and pepper until well blended; stir in 1 cup shredded cheddar. Pour egg mixture over top of the cauliflower. Top with remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
