Roasted Cauliflower with Cilantro, Lime and Garlic

Like most kids, I definitely enjoy the occasional creamy, crunchy, or cheesy side dish to go with whatever main dish I’m preparing or enjoying out at one of my favorite local restaurants. After all—all things in moderation, right? (Well, maybe not all things—I try never to eat things that can cause our bodies to become sick!)

At any rate, it’s my mission to get in my kitchen and create meals that are yummy and good for our family. And I think my latest creation definitely qualifies as both delicious and healthy! It’s my flavorful cilantro, lime, and garlic-roasted cauliflower recipe.

In terms of health benefits, cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable (same plant family as broccoli, kale, cabbage, and collards). Cauliflower is low in calories and an excellent source of Vitamin C, K, and B6, and a great source of dietary fiber. Focusing on the yummy side, the roasted cauliflower is topped with creamy avocado, shaved Parmesan cheese, and my favorite herb—cilantro. It might sound like an odd combination, but trust me it works. It’s super delicious! So, give it a try and, as always, let me know what you think.
