Cajun Cauliflower Bake (Keto)

I never run out of ideas for making interesting side dishes to enjoy alongside meat or fish. I LOVE vegetables and believe its where you can get really creative. (It’s also where most of your daily allocated carbs should be coming from: high fibre, nutritious vegetables that are packed with goodness.) Here, I coated cauliflower florets in a spicy Cajun spice mix and roasted them until done. To add additional flavour and a creamy mouthfeel, I drizzled over a mix of double cream and sour cream before cooking for a few more minutes. This Cajun cauliflower side dish is so packed with flavour and spice, I advise it’s served alongside simple roasted chicken thighs or pork chops.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Trim the cauliflower into smaller, even-sized florets.
  3. Place into a large bowl and add the garlic powder, onion powder, Cajun spice, cayenne pepper, salt and white pepper. Drizzle over the olive oil.
  4. Use a silicon spatula (or simply get stuck in with clean hands) and mix well to combine, ensuring all the florets are evenly-coated in the spices and oil. Spread out onto a tray.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. The cauliflower should be cooked through sufficiently, but this will depend on how small you trimmed the florets, so its best to check at 20 min.
  6. Remove the tray and use a large spoon to transfer the cooked cauliflower to a suitably sized oven proof baking dish. Do not turn the oven off.
  7. Combine the double cream and sour cream together in a little bowl and pour it over the cauliflower.
  8. Cover with the grated cheese and return to the oven for 5-6 minutes.
  9. Serve garnished with chopped parsley. (Drizzle over a little more sour cream if you feel it needs it. This also helps bring down the heat a little.)
  10. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest).
