As much as I like to serve sweets, I do make it a point to make some really good veggie options for dinner as well. I have found that the more thought and effort I put into creating a veggie dish, the likelihood that my kids would not only eat it, but also like it. Not always, but most of the time.
One of my go-to’s is always this dish.
It is super simple and everyone loves it! Check it out!
You will need:
One head of cauliflower
For the feta dip:
1 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
5 rotations of Cracked black pepper
For the cauliflower:
With your kitchen sheers cut off the florets and line them on your greased cookie sheet.
Starting out, the florets will be large. Once you have snipped them all from your head of cauliflower, go back and cut each large floret in half making them medium sized.
Then drizzle your olive oil very generously over the cauliflower. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste and then toss with your hands.
Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until the bottoms caramelize and the tops start to brown.
While they are roasting begin your feta dip.
In your blender add your ingredients and pulse until the feta and sour cream are incorporated. With a rubber spatula stir the bottom and sides mixing them together.
*Be sure not to over mix because this will lead to a very runny dip.
The consistency should be thick with the feta being mostly pulverized.
Once your whipped feta dip is completed, place into freezer to chill until cauliflower is ready.
Make sure to serve the cauliflower hot and the dip chilled.
Seriously, this dip is SO SIMPLE. You and your family will love it! I made it for Thanksgiving last year and it was a knockout!
It is always a good thing when you can make a veggie dish your kids will enjoy.
Then, you can serve them desert without a guilty conscience!
Enjoy, my friends.
