Feeding the Active Writer

Every once in a while I get back to doing one of these.

This is relatively low carb but it is not a low fat or low calorie item.

Oh, wow, that was good.

Cheesy Garlic Cauliflower Bake (take 2).

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 2 lb cauliflower chopped into small florets.
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts for this, but basically because that’s what I had handy)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese.

Preheat oven to 350
Grease a 2 quart casserole dish.

In a saucepan heat the heavy cream to near boiling.
Add in the cheese, garlic powder, thyme and pepper.
Stir until cheese is melted.

Put the cauliflower into the casserole dish.
Top with the chopped onion.
Pour the cheese mixture over the cauliflower spreading it so everything is covered.

Top with the nuts and parmesan.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Let cool a bit before serving.

      1. Ah, I was going to mention this. I saw the quantity andblinked. Hard. And used 2 tsp for myself. Should be out of the oven in 30 minutes, and smells plenty garlic-y already.

        Also, I substituted 2/3rds cup of whole milk for some of the cream, and added about 3/4 cup of yogurt. This should be interesting.


        1. The reason I use the heavy cream is that it’s low in sugar. Milk, half and half, and yogurt (even plain yogurt) have a lot of sugar naturally. One of the points of “feeding the active writer” is low net carbs. Diabetic dontcha know, and trying as much as possible to treat with diet while keeping medication to a minimum.
