We simply couldn’t resist cooking up another recipe from the new Eat to Live Quick and Easy Cookbook by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. This Roasted Cauliflower dish was very good and I continue to be impressed by the nutritional profile of the meals from this cookbook as well…which should be no surprise. What I really liked about this meal was the heartiness of it. It was very filling yet has under 500 calories per serving. You have to give it a try and let me know what you think!
Of course, this picture is the adult version of the meal. This can be a little intimidating for the kiddos and they likely wouldn’t eat this. So we have to modify how we serve it up for them in order to get them to eat, at least part of it. So for the boys, we almost always serve them up the same dinner as us in order to continuously expose them to new tastes and flavors. We do our best to not force them to eat anything. We usually do ask that the try new food before discrediting it.
For them, we kept the spinach raw because they prefer it that way and kept the brown rice separate from the cauliflower mixture. This allows them to enjoy their rice and spinach independently and this time they chose not to try any of the new meal. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don’t. But they always get served up enough food to fill their tummies.
So, like normal, I am not going to show you the full recipe but will give you the ingredients list. What I would like you to do, is purchase this book off of Amazon today so you can own a copy for yourself and try out any of these recipes.
Ok, so onto the recipe. Here are the ingredients:
Cauliflower, Onion, Garlic, Fennel Seeds (we chose to exclude these), Cumin, Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper (we used Paprika), Diced Tomatoes, Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans), Spinach, Brown Rice

Of course, don’t forget to check out the Cronometer data below to validate how nutritious this recipe is. Have you tried out Cronometer yet? I don’t use to it track calories or anything like that, but it is a great tool to become familiar with the calorie density of foods as well as their nutritional profile.
