I’m a huge snacker (you’ll always find me nibbling on little bits of this or that between meals), so I’m constantly searching for new snack recipes that I can quickly and easily make at home. I hit the jackpot recently with this Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower, which I mentioned in a Friday Four post not too long ago and again last week when I made it with this recipe. But rather than just talking about it over and over, I thought it was time to share the recipe with you instead.
This snack is downright addictive if you’re a veggie fan like myself, but honestly, you don’t even have to like cauliflower to fall in love with it. Case in point: When I made this a few Sundays ago, Harrison shocked me by saying that this recipe single-handedly made him—a self-described cauliflower hater—think twice about eating the vegetable. The flavor combination of garlic and Parmesan is hard to resist, and even though it’s a relatively healthy snack, this low-carb recipe feels super indulgent and satisfying. Check out the recipe below, then tell me: What are your favorite healthy snacks?
