Loaded Roasted Cauliflower Bowl

I just love potatoes!  Fried, mashed, baked, cubed, you name it…I’ll eat it.  BUT…potatoes are full of carbs.  While they are healthier carbs than that of white bread or a Snickers bar; they are still loaded with carbs.  Thus, potatoes must be eaten in moderation.  That’s where cauliflower comes in.  I’ve riced it, I’ve roasted it, I’ve steamed it, I’ve mashed it…there isn’t much I haven’t done with cauliflower in recipes.  This recipe though, I have to say was WAY better with the roasted cauliflower than with potatoes.  My mouth was so happy with these flavors that I was rather sad when the bowl was empty.  If you’d like to feel the sadness I did when it was gone, then keep reading for the recipe.

Loaded Roasted Cauliflower Bowls


4 cups raw cauliflower florets (just like spinach they shrink with roasting)

Shredded beef brisket (recipe is linked)



Optional Toppings:

cheese, bacon, chives, sour cream, diced onions, queso


Place cauliflower florets in a bowl and drizzle very lightly with avocado oil.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Pour the prepared cauliflower florets into the already preheated air fryer and cook for 15 minutes or until the tops of the florets begin to turn a golden brown.  While the cauliflower cooks, prepare the shredded brisket and the toppings you desire.  After the florets are finished cooking, place a serving in the bottom of a bowl, then top with the desired toppings.  Serve immediately.


The nutrition facts does not include any optional toppings.  Remember the cauliflower florets shrink as they cook and they aren’t as filling as potatoes so you can eat more.  A serving size of the cooked florets for myself or my husband is about 1-1 1/2 cups.


Do you have any super yummy air fryer recipes you’ve been loving lately?  Hope y’all are having an amazing week so far.
