  • 1 pound cauliflower florets
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 slices natural turkey bacon from leg meat, uncured and nitrate free (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons 2% Greek yogurt or coconut cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • garnish: chopped fresh chives, 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded or grated parmesan, red pepper flakes, cracked black pepper

Method

  1. Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot and add a steamer basket
  2. Place the cauliflower in the basket, cover, and steam until it is very tender, about 20 minutes
  3. Be sure to add more water to the bottom of the pot if it starts to run low
  4. If you are using bacon, set a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with olive oil
  5. Once the skillet is hot, add the bacon

Note.spraying the turkey bacon with a little cooking spray or olive oil while it cooks will help it get crispy

  1. Cook until crispy, then chop or crumble it into bits
  2. Allow the florets to cool slightly, then transfer them to a food processor
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the processor, then pulse a few times
  4. It’s important that you pulse rather than blend continuously in order to avoid making soup
  5. Add the contents to a bowl or divide among 3 meal containers, then top with the bacon bits, chives, and cheese (if desired), along with red pepper flakes (if you like some heat) or cracked black pepper
