My cookbook features three different versions of ‘Cauliflower Helper’. In this one we give it an Italian flavor with ricotta, mozzarella, spaghetti sauce, and fresh basil, to make a healthy lasagna dish.
Yes, I said ‘healthy lasagna dish’.
Oh hell yes.
(PS – All of my recipes are what I call ‘throw-together’. You won’t see much measuring. This makes them super easy!)
Brown a medium chopped onion and a pound of ground beef
While cooking, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning
Meanwhile, steam a bag of frozen cauliflower until very tender. Mix cooked cauliflower into the ground beef mixture, breaking it into small pieces
Add a good handful of shredded mozzarella cheese, a container of ricotta cheese, and half a jar of low-sugar spaghetti sauce.
Heat and stir til cheese is melted and mixture is heated through
Sprinkle with sliced fresh basil
Trying to get on a healthier track??
Hey! I’m Julie.
I’m the mother of three, ages 28, 21, and 6, and Gima (grandmom) to a five-year-old grandson.
Over my 28 years of #momming I have been ALL the moms (single, married, stay-at-home, working, young, ‘mature’, struggling, stable, etc) and have faced every healthy eating challenge there is.
Now the founder of Well Fed Families, and author of the ‘Easy, Healthy Meals for the Tired-Ass Mom’ cookbook, I bring my real-life, family-raising experience to the table to help other overwhelmed mamas get on a healthier track.
So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3
