Cheesy cauliflower with pesto

Cheesy cauliflower with pesto


  • 1 Medium head Cauliflower (about 2 1/4 pounds), leaves and core removed
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ small spoon salt
  • ¼ small spoon Ground pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup Grated mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup Pesto


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place the whole cauliflower in a metal pie pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour the water around the cauliflower and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until a knife is easily inserted into the center, 40 to 50 minutes. Take it out of the oven. Heat grill to high.

  3. Meanwhile, mix mozzarella cheese and pesto in a small bowl. When the cauliflower is cool enough to handle, separate the areas between the florets and fill with the pesto mixture. Reserve a little of the mixture and spread it over the cauliflower. Return to the oven and roast until melted and golden on top, 4 to 5 minutes.

Nutritional information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

*Daily Values ​​(DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients that should be consumed each day. The % Daily Value (%DV) on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of these total recommended amounts. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Daily Value is based on a standard diet of 2,000 calories. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of a specific nutrient. (For example, people who follow a heart-healthy diet are advised to eat less sodium daily than those who follow a standard diet.)
