Here is an imaginative snack recipe that you can eat as an afternoon nibble, or serve as a side with your main meal.
It comes with a delicious radicchio salsa that makes it perfect for snacking by yourself, or serving at parties for friends and family.
For those of you who haven’t tried roasted cauliflower yet, once you try it you will never go back to steaming your cauliflower! It has a slightly crunchy texture and is a healthy, nutritious food for all the family too.
You can also use cauliflower to make an appetizing alternative to rice too, which is a really handy trick for those avoiding or limiting rice as part of their Candida diet. Just take a bunch of cauliflower florets, throw them in the blender, and pulse until they resemble rice grains. Easy!
- 1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed, cut into thick, ½ inch slices
- 2 Tbsp. olive or coconut oil
- 1 cup radicchio or red cabbage, roughly chopped
- 1 shallot, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup fresh parsley
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- 1 Tbsp. coconut aminos or apple cider vinegar
- ¼ tsp. salt
- Pepper to taste
- Pinch of powdered stevia or 1 drop liquid stevia
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
- Lay cauliflower slices directly on a rimmed baking sheet, brush both sides of each slice with oil and season with salt. Roast 10 to 15 minutes, until undersides begin to brown, then flip slices with a spatula and roast for another 10 minutes.
- While cauliflower is roasting, prepare salsa. In the bowl of a food processor, add chopped radicchio and shallot, parsley, sliced almonds, coconut aminos, salt, pepper and a pinch of powdered stevia. Pulse until just combined.
- To serve, spoon radicchio salsa on top of roasted cauliflower slices.
