Hello & Happy Tuesday





With a new year comes new recipes, and this one has been my go to for years! So why wait so long to share it? It’s just so easy to the point I thought it would be a hard pass for many. However,  over the years of doing nutrition you come to realize it’s the easy concepts we crave. How to take an everyday veggie and turn it into something you crave. That’s a win, always. 


When it comes to cauliflower, I’m all about it. You can honestly do so much with it, the options are endless. From soups to sauces, pizza crust and more, there isn’t anything that cauliflower can’t do. Bonus, it’s packed with fiber so it’s so filling. 


In terms of flavors, I love all things lemon. So as you would imagine, this recipe is just me through and through. 






What’s fab about it? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, flavor packed, fiber packed, perfect for any season, has notes of lemon and garlic, the capers add an additional savory component, you can add vegan parmesan for a cheesy component or pass on it, it makes for the perfect entree or side dish, can easily be made in bulk, and it’s just such a game changer!




If you love all things lemon or cauliflower, you have to try this new vegan Roasted Lemon Cauliflower!
