‘Meaty’ Cauliflower

This is the most filling vegetable dish you will ever make and its delicious!

I’m calling this ‘meaty’ because when you bite into it, it feels like you’re eating a piece of chicken or meat. Its crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. My kids and I couldn’t stop eating it. You can enjoy this as a side or as a main, yes its that good!
