Crock Pot Cauliflower and Cheese
What could be tastier than a one-dish combination of nutty, sweet-tasting cauliflower and rich cheddar cheese? The reason cauliflower – a superfood — has become such a popular go-to vegetable is because it is packed with nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. It is a very good source of choline, dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, phosphorus, and biotin. One ounce of cheddar cheese adds 7 to 8 grams of protein, so you have a powerhouse meal in a single dish.
And although this dish takes over three hours to cook, it only takes five minutes of prep time, especially if you pick up cauliflower flowerets instead of a whole head of cauliflower. Add a nice side salad to complement this recipe and wait for the “Wows” to follow. This low-sucrose dish is flavorful and is not your typical vegetable dish. The best part is that all you need to do is to put the ingredients into a crock pot, and let it cook for several hours.
Sucrose and starch tolerance vary. Individuals may need to modify the recipe to meet personal diet goals.
