Vegetable casseroles are where itâ€™s at. Because the dish is a casserole, you feel a bit indulgent, which takes care of all those cravings for comfort, while not sidetracking your healthy lifestyle. This recipe calls for cauliflower and red pepper, but Iâ€™ve used many different vegetables â€“ mostly root vegetables â€“ in their place, such as broccoli, shredded carrot, celery root, beets, crimini mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, and artichokes. The only â€œheavyâ€ ingredient is shredded cheese. Use any raw goat or sheep cheese you can find, and there is no worrying weather your body will be able to process it all.
Cauliflower: is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals. It helps protect against free radical damage, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Cauliflower also boosts brain function and because of its fiber content, promotes digestive health.
