This Roasted Cauliflower in Garlic Cheese Sauce recipe is simple to make and tastes really good to eat.
Roasted Cauliflower in Garlic Cheese Sauce
This recipe is roasting with a bit of ‘sauce’ involved.
I love Greek Yogurt and I love adding Greek Yogurt to my recipes.
There has been a bit of Greek Yogurt added to this recipe. The yogurt will give the cauliflower a hint of sauce while actually being roasted. Hence, we will introduce some taste.
I also admit that I may have stretched a boundary of terms by calling what surrounds the cauliflower “sauce”.
While it is not a ‘true sauce’ the sauce in this recipe is more of a ‘diet-friendly’ version of a sauce.
However, you can omit the Greek Yogurt or double the amount that you add when you make this to appease your preferences.
This recipe actually got me to eat my cauliflower.
I like that the cauliflower is roasted yet, not too dry to enjoy. This is because I find plain cauliflower to be bland. Hence, I used an Italian seasoning to give this some added taste. My seasoning had a light touch of salt as it was a general Italian style seasoning. However, you can use your favorite seasoning as the salt does not have to be there. Also, if you are avoiding salt in your diet you can certainly omit any salt.
Cauliflower has some great nutritional benefits to it.
One head of cauliflower is loaded in Vitamin B-6, potassium and fiber. Cauliflower is seriously loaded in Vitamin C with over four times the amount that is recommended in a day. Because of this, we can benefit from eating this.

What do you serve this Roasted Cauliflower in Garlic Cheese Sauce with?
You could serve this with most any kind of meat or poultry.
Since there is a bit of garlic in this, I would pair this with a less- flavorful meal. I like tuna steaks or maybe a roasted chicken. A glass of white wine would be nice too. 🙂
