Feta and Cauliflower One Pan Bake : Vegetarian Lower Carb

This recipe suggestion from Diet Doctor site puts a whole new spin on the classic cauliflower cheese dish. It is a completely vegetarian, one-pan meal using edamame and feta for protein and satiety, tomatoes for juiciness, and garlic and oregano for flavour. This low carb, high-satiety meal takes only five minutes to prepare, and the rest of the time is spent in the oven, and you only use one pan! Surely a winning dish 😋

Serves Four
1 (2 lbs) large cauliflower, broken into florets
1½ tbsp olive oil, divided
salt and ground black pepper
9 oz. (1 2⁄3 cups) edamame beans
1½ lbs cherry tomatoes
4 garlic cloves, whole and smashed
½ tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp chili flakes, optional
¼ cup vegetable stock
10 oz. (2 cups) feta cheese
¼ cup (1⁄3 oz.) fresh basil, for garnish
can be seen here

Did you know
Feta is made from sheep or goat’s milk. It is good for your bones since it’s high in calcium, protein and phosphorous. In fact, it contains more calcium than most other cheeses. You can find out more about Feta cheese by reading this post here

Edamame beans are whole, immature soybeans, sometimes referred to as vegetable-type soybeans. They are green and differ in colour from regular soybeans, which are typically light brown, tan, or beige. Edamame contains high amounts of several vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre, and you can read more about Edamame here
