This Goat Cheese Cauliflower Bake is so scrumptious you might just eat it for the whole meal. It's a side dish that can't be beat.
In my 24 years on this earth I have learned that there are only a few things that you can count on to be 100% true. Always:
- Peanut Butter + a spoon fixes all wounds, broken hearts and bad days.
- It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere (read: anytime Is a good time for a margarita)
- Cheese also has the ability to cure all wounds, broken hearts and bad days.
Maybe they’re cousins?
And finally, and this is one that I have just recently learned: 4. Cauliflower is the “Super Man” of vegetables.
Or woman. I’m an equal opportunity cauliflower-ist.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I HATE with a capital HATE making side dishes for dinner. If I could just eat a piece of plain chicken every day for always, I would be one happy lady. And, yes, I will allow you to judge me for having the most boring taste-buds of any food blogger to ever exist.
But, there’s a story behind this here side dish (that I am totally, utterly and completely in LURVE WITH by the way).
It was one of THOSE days. You know those days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed for absolutely no reason. The days where the just want to throw rocks at the happy-sounding birds chirping outside your window.
Until you realize that you would have to pay for a broken window and your day would go from bad >>> MEGA bad.
Eventually it was time to make dinner. I became grumpier at the thought of having to make something besides a piece of chicken. So, I pondered the few keys facts in life that I knew I could count on. I had no peanut butter. So that was off the list.
How-ev-er, what I did have was a head of cauliflower and a whole lot of goat cheese. Bright light!
Into the food processor went the aforementioned suspects. Along with some turkey bacon. ß That was a good idea.
And, when it came out of the oven and I dug into its soft, creamy and oh-so-cheesy deliciousness, well, my day? It became the best. Day. Ever.
P.s Are you wondering where “it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere” was when I was pondering my list?
I’ll give you 1 guess.
Are you tired of the dinner routine?
