Raosted Whole Cauliflower Courtesy of Sharon

Sharon, our family member from Israel, has just contributed a very interesting recipe for roasting a whole head of cauliflower she found in her newspaper. Since cauliflower seems to be a mainstay of a number of OFL's, this is a good one to try for something different! We DO have to keep variety in our diets! So give this one a try!

The daily newspaper I get here has a wonderful Atkins-friendly recipe (not induction -- it has some yogurt in it) for whole baked cauliflower:

1 fresh whole cauliflower
1 Tbsp salt (for boiling water)
1/2 c olive oil
1/2 tsp mustard powder
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 c yogurt
1/4 tsp hot paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 or more cloves of crushed garlic
1 tsp salt (for sauce)
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.

Fill a large pot about 2/3 full of water, add 1 Tbsp salt, put in the whole cauliflower and parboil for about 8 minutes. Take out and let drain in a large colander for a few minutes, then place in baking pan.

Now take all the other ingredients and mix them together in a bowl. Spread evenly over entire surface of cauliflower. Bake 40-45 minutes, till surface begins to brown. Serve with lemon wedges and more yogurt on the side. Serves 4-6.
