Roasted Cauliflower Bake

Less is definitely more when it comes to this creamy, roasted cauliflower bake! With a nutrient and vitamin powerhouse like cauliflower, it is perfectly complimented with coconut milk to give the creamy taste – without the guilt!

This dish is a real family favorite and one I’ve been doing the same way for many years now. I’m sure once you try it, it’ll be one of yours too! The freshness and subtle flavors of the parsley and sage work well to provide a fleck of green and without overpowering the hero of the dish.

Should there be any leftovers, it refrigerates and freezes well so you can always have one ready to heat up. This dish is so simple and with so much flavor you’ll have everyone asking the recipe.

Perfect served as a side or as a star attraction for a light lunch.
