Cauliflower and Bacon Boats


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 5 strips bacon
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh herbs
  • 1 tbsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 stick butter (you can use olive oil instead if you like)
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 endive
  • 2 tbsp your favorite dressing
  • salt and pepper to taste


Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Arrange on a baking pan and roast in your oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cauliflower becomes tender. Once the cauliflower is done, heat butter or olive oil in a pan and saute the onions and garlic. Throw in the bacon and continue until its ready. For the last step, add the cauliflower to the mixture in the pan and add lemon juice, lemon zest, nutmeg, herbs, and salt and pepper. Arrange the endive leaves on a plate and add a drop or two of your favorite dressing. Fill with the cauliflower mixture. Sprinkle dried chives, or any herb you adore and serve immediately.


The cauliflower mixture can also be prepared a day ahead! Serve in the endive leaves or as a side dish without the endives
