    Sounds interesting. For some reason though I just never could get into califlower. I tried it a few times but just couldn’t get into it. I did share this on FB, I know a lot that love it and would appreciate the recipe.

    Riddler, you might like something I do with cauliflower! I like to do beats, carrots and cauliflower with a apple cider vinegar, balsamic, avocado oil, garlic, pepper and salt. Marinaded and roasted in the oven. It’s really good over some quinoa. I haven’t carb counted this meal, but I don’t believe it would be very high (I’m not sure what your diet plan is). (:
