Cauliflower Parmigiana

This dish was a result of a serious craving! I adore anything with Napoletana sauce and my number one veggie – cauliflower! Full of goodness and so easy to prepare, it’s such a warm and nourishing option for those rainy nights. Finish it off with a touch of Parmesan cheese and some fresh basil – simply delish!

 

Serves:  4 (as a side)

Ingredients: 

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2-4 tbsp of Napoletana/Tomato-based sauce (good quality, without additives or sugar)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • Handful of chopped basil

Method: 

  1. Pulse a cauliflower head in a food processor until it reaches rice-like consistency.
  2. Heat up a large saucepan and melt coconut oil.
  3. When the oil has melted, add half a chopped onion.
  4. Once the onion starts to brown, gradually add the cauliflower rice.
  5. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt over cooking cauliflower.
  6. When the rice starts to cook (4-5 minutes) – add in 2-4 tbsp sauce. Stir to combine.
  7. Turn off pan. Sprinkle over Parmesan and chopped basil.
  8. Spoon on to plates and enjoy!

Notes:

  • This dish pairs perfectly with grilled chicken and avocado.
  • For my vegans – leave out the cheese and instead sprinkle with some crushed cashews or vegan cheese if you wish.

    This looks good. Don’t have a food processor, can this be done in a blender?

    • A food processor definitely makes it easier! But you could achieve a similar result by very finely chopping the cauliflower and then following the recipe as above 🙂
