Who says carbs have all the fun? You can still enjoy low-carb meals that are FULL on flavor and macronutrients. Here’s a low-carb spin on a “fully loaded baked potato.” And it’s easy to customize to fit a carnivorous or vegetarian diet. Guarantee you won’t be able to eat just one serving!

Ingredients for up to 4 servings:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 4 slices of turkey bacon (natural, nitrate free, uncured) OR (sauteed and shaved tempeh for vegans)
  • 1/3 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste (or minced garlic)
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning (or oregano)
  • 4 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (optional, 1 tbsp per serving)
  • chopped chives to taste
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • coconut oil spray

Tools:

  • High powered blender or food processor. I used the Vitamix 750.

Steps:

  1. Chop stem and leaves from cauliflower head and add the remaining florets to boiling water. Boil cauliflower until it is soft.
  2. Cook turkey bacon in a nonstick skillet. Lightly spray with coconut oil so they become crispier when cooking.  Allow them to cool on a paper towel and then chop into pieces.
  3. In a high-powered blender, add cauliflower, Greek yogurt, chicken broth, garlic and Italian seasoning. Pulse blend until smooth.
  4. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper. Add chopped chives and cheddar if desired.
