Nutrient Packed Lemon Pepper Cauliflower

Looking to add some extra fiber to your diet? Try adding in cruciferous veggies like cauliflower & it’s cousin, romanesco! My go to with cauliflower is just to roast it with EVOO, salt and pepper sooo I was thrown for a loop when I got romanesco in my hungry harvest box last week! After a quick Pinterest search, multiple recipes showed that its perfect complement was lemon & capers.  🥦

One cup of this veggie side gives you 3-4g of fiber, which gets you closer to your daily fiber goal of 25-35g/day. Adding some healthy fat, like olive oil, helps absorb the vitamin/minerals better. Finally, lemons give you vitamin C and capers are full of antioxidants! •

Directions: place florets on baking sheet, drizzle with 1-2tbsp olive oil, juice of 1 lemon and sprinkle with capers. Roast at 425F for 40 minutes.

Low FODMAP NOTE***

-cauliflower is high FODMAP and not appropriate during the elimination phase.

-if you know that MANNITOL is not an issue for you, then you are good to go!

-romanesco isn’t tested, so start small with 1-2 florets to monitor your tolerance. 🏻
