Cauliflower is a highly nutritious vegetable, member of the cruciferous family, and it contains many nutrients that can help prevent a range of diseases from cancer to cataracts. This is a very simple, yet tasty dish!
1 med head of cauliflower
16 oz Monterrey Jack cheese, cubed
16 oz turkey breast or cooked ham, cubed
1 cup Alfredo Sauce (store bought or home made)
1 can Nestlè Table Cream
1 tbsp milk or lemon juice
There are 2 ways of making this dish. You can choose between keeping the head intact or cutting the florets of the cauliflower. If using the head, boil it in water. If cutting into florets you can steam them. Either way add 1 tbsp of milk or lemon juice to boiling water to retain its white color. Cooking time and water amount will vary depending o method chosen and size of cauliflower. Cook for a short time to maintain crisp texture and nutrients. Be careful to not overcook! The cauliflower will break apart if you do. Set the head or florets on a colander to drain excess water.
In a bowl, mix the alfredo sauce and table cream. Add parmesan cheese to taste.
Place the drained cauliflower in a baking dish. Stuff the head with the cheese and meat cubes or simply sprinkle them on top if doing the florets version. Cover completely with the mixed cream and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake for 10 minutes in 350ºF pre-heated oven. Broil briefly to brown. Serve over brown or white rice. Buon Apetit!
