Cauliflower Stuffing

Here’s a healthier stuffing for those of you looking to cut out some carbs this Thanksgiving!

It has all the stuffing flavors just instead of bread, I used cauliflower!

Cauliflower has stood in for carbs plenty of other times, so why not with stuffing? Of course you need to like roasted cauliflower to enjoy it, but it still has all the things you want in great stuffing.

It has the same spices and delicious add-ins that you’d expect, it’s nice and soft, and it totally has that comfort food factor. It’s actually so easy to make that I will definitely make it outside of the holiday season. Believe it or not, it’s simple enough even for a busy weeknight.

Ingredients

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • Olive Oil 
  • 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter unsalted
  • 1 Lb Breakfast Sausage casings removed
  • 1 Large Onion finely chopped
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Fennel Bulb finely chopped
  • 4 Celery Stalks finely chopped
  • 1/2 Cup White Wine dry
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Sage finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Thyme finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ cup Grated Fontinella cheese or Parmesan cheese 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Chop cauliflower into florets and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. 

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until the cauliflower softens and begins to brown slightly.

While the cauliflower bakes, cook the sausage.

Add the sausage to a large skillet. 

Break up the sausage with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Cook until no longer pink. 

Place sausage on a paper towel-lined plate.

Wipe the skillet out with a paper towel but leave some of the grease and bits. 

Add butter to the skillet and melt, stirring constantly so it doesn’t brown. 

Add chopped onions, garlic, fennel, and celery. Sprinkle it with salt and  pepper. Cook in butter until they’re soft and lightly browned (around 10 minutes). 

Add wine to skillet and bring to a boil. 

Cook until no wine is left — about 5 minutes. 

Add cheese, parsley, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

In a casserole dish, combine sausage, cauliflower, and veggies and stir to combine. 

Place them in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. If you want the tops a little crispy, turn the broiler on for 5 minutes.

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Mash

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Mash

This Cauliflower mash recipe is an easy way to cut down on carbs without sacrificing flavor. I mean, what’s the point in eating something at all if it doesn’t taste good, right?

In my opinion, food should be all about balance, so this recipe is a great way to cut out the carbs from regular mashed potatoes, but keep all the amazing flavor. And if you really want to be healthy, the cheese is totally optional. Either way, you’re going to love this tasty Cauliflower Mash recipe!

And Cauliflower mash is actually so easy to make. It’s basically the same process as making mashed potatoes, but with cauliflower instead! Boil the cauliflower, blend it into a creamy consistency, then add in the extras. 

You can use a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. (Or smash by hand!)

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Head Cauliflower leaves removed and broken into large florets
  • 4-6 Garlic Cloves finely chopped and divided
  • 2 cups Chicken or vegetable broth
  • 4 cups Water
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated 
  • ¼ cup cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped Thyme 
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped Rosemary 
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

Place the cauliflower florets in a large pot and cover with broth and water.

Add in half of the garlic and a good pinch of salt and pepper. 

Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until cauliflower is fork-tender.

Using a colander, strain the cooked cauliflower and place it into a food processor. 

Add in the remaining garlic, herbs, grated cheese and butter. As the food processor is processing, slowly add in the milk. 

Process until smoothly pureed.

Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs.

Enjoy!

Tip: The cauliflower is not covered fully by the water and broth, this way it will get steamed. 

Cauliflower Mash is a great side with Steak and a glass of Scout and Cellar The Resident Zinfandel!
