Greek Cauliflower Bake 6-min

Cauliflower has had a serious glow-up in the last decade and I, for one, am all for it. From pizza crusts to taco fillings to a rice substitute, this veggie has earned a staple spot on my grocery list time and time again. I’m always excited to try out new recipes using this powerhouse vegetable and when I came across this Greek Cauliflower Bake, I knew it was a must-try! Packed with tomatoes, olives, and feta, this casserole can hold its own as a side or a light main dish. If you appreciate Greek flavors then you are going to love this one.

Start things out by adding the cherry tomatoes, olives, and garlic to your baking dish and drizzling with a generous dose of olive oil. Pour the feta cheese into the center and pop it in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the tomatoes begin to pop. As the sauce ingredients bake, steam the cauliflower just until tender. You’ll then mash the baked tomato mixture to create an easy sauce. Toss in the cauliflower, sprinkle cheese over the top, and bake the dish for an additional 20 minutes. Once the cheese is beginning to brown you’ll know it’s ready to eat!

Pair this dish with grilled chicken or a Greek-inspired salad for a stunning summer dinner. You could also easily add some shredded chicken or white beans to the casserole itself to bump up the protein and turn it into a heartier main dish. With the tangy feta and juicy tomatoes, this cauliflower bake is one that everyone will love. Give it a try for your next family dinner and we’re sure you’ll agree!
