What You Need?

  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion, thinly sliced
  • Cooking Spray

Whipped Cauliflower:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup milk

Whipped Cauliflower:

  • Cut 1 head trimmed cauliflower into 1-inch chunks. Put in a large pot with 2 cloves peeled and crushed garlic and ½ cup whole milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is very tender, about 20 minutes. Purée cauliflower and cooking liquid in batches in a food processor until smooth. Fold in ½ cup crumbled feta or blue cheese and serve. Serves 4.



What To Do?

Arrange 2 noodles on top.  Layer on remaining 2 c. kale, remaining onions and 1/2 c. cheese.  Arrange 2 noodles on top.  Spread remaining 3/4 c. cauliflower over noodles, then sprinkle on remaining cheese.  Cover with foil and bake 40 minutes, or until bubbly.  Uncover and bake 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and garnish with chopped parsley.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Serves 4.
