Move over hamburger helper there is a new casserole in town!
Cauliflower is the new potato to me , it is very versatile and I am still amazed with how many different meal options you have with it. There is a great deal of health benefits to eating it as well! My oldest son now eats it raw ha ha , he still hates the smell of it when it’s cooked but its his favorite veggie! This cheeseburger casserole is sure to be a hit ,it resembles hamburger helper just with out all the added gunk! you can rice the cauliflower or leave them in florets for the dish. Either works fine! Two thumbs up from my family on this one! Try it out and let me know what you think!
Also I sprinkled some bacon crumbles on top the recipe does not call for this i just had extra from day prior
I am sharing the benefits of eating cauliflower so you will know what a great food you’re putting into your system!
Cauliflower is a great source of dietary fiber, which is essential for optimal digestion. When you get enough fiber in your diet, it helps to keep things moving smoothly through the intestines. Cauliflower also contains a compound called glucoraphin, which protects your stomach and intestines from certain health conditions such as cancer and ulcers.
Cauliflower contains a high amount of antioxidants, which are essential for the body’s overall health and help to prevent heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Antioxidants are also essential in destroying free radicals that accelerate the signs of aging.
Because of the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K in cauliflower, it helps to prevent chronic inflammation that leads to conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, and certain bowel conditions.
Cauliflower provides a good amount of folate (B9), a B vitamin that is necessary for a healthy pregnancy. Folate deficiency in pregnant women can lead to problems such as birth defects and low birth weight.
In addition to folate, cauliflower is also loaded with other important B vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and thiamine.
Cauliflower protects from heart disease in many ways. It contains allicin, which has been found to reduce the occurrence of stroke and heart disease. Additionally, cauliflower can help to lower cholesterol levels in the body.
Cauliflower is a great food to include in your diet if you’re dieting because it’s low in calories and can be used in a variety of ways. Try ricing the cauliflower into a “rice” and using it in stir-fries instead of regular rice. You can also boil cauliflower and mash it into a healthier version of mashed potatoes.
