Tonight I actually cooked dinner at home. I know, rare. But I have to confess… it was hardly cooking.
We had pulled pork , green beans, and “cheesy parmesan cauliflower bake”.
(yes – I made that up)
They were canned green beans, with a few pieces of carver board roast beef (thick sandwich meat!) added for flavor. A bag of frozen cauliflower.
Even the pulled pork was bought packaged from the local grocery store. So it was more like a “heat and serve” than actual cooking. 😉
My plate was around 7 net carbs, tops – and all “good carbs” of course.
The cauliflower was fabulous, by the way! Here’s how I made it…
I should start by saying this is usually how I prepare broccoli at home, when I’m bored with plain old steamed broccoli.
But I was out of broccoli, and happened to have a bag cauliflower in the freezer.
Cheesy Parmesan Cauliflower Bake
I boiled the cauliflower until tender. Drained it, then added: salt, butter & grated parmesan cheese (to taste). I put it into a non-stick pan, turned the oven on about 375, covered the cauliflower in shredded cheese, then baked it until the cheese was good and bubbly.
As I mentioned, the pulled pork was a “convenience food” I found at my local grocery store.
They had two options: with sauce, and without sauce. This one (without sauce) is very low carb and absolutely delicious! It’s flavored with vinegar I believe – tangy and tender. Yum!
It’s ready to eat after about 3 minutes in the microwave.
Easy, delicious, FAST low carb dinner!
And the kids didn’t really know the difference (ie low carb), they just thought it was a usual dinner. 😉
