Eating meat, fast food, and sandwiches are okay, but sometimes, you want a healthy, home-cooked meal that will fill you up but doesn’t exactly take hours to prepare.

Cauliflower to the rescue.

Cauliflower is a great source of antioxidants. It’s high in choline, which is an essential nutrient for memory, mood, and recall.

It’s also a significant source of sulforaphane, which helps fight cancer. Aside from that, it’s also high in fiber and a very helpful vegetable.

Cauliflower is a veggie worth chopping.

Once they are cooked, strain your cauliflower and let them cool at room temperature.

Prepare the breading mix.

Put your panko breadcrumbs in a large bowl, and then add your crushed garlic, followed by olive oil.

Add the Italian herbs, dried parsley, and your cheese. Mix well and set it aside.

Now, get two separate bowls, one for the egg mixture and one for the flour.

Get your cauliflower and dip each one with flour.

Then dip them in the egg mixture, and finally in the panko breading.

Put them on a baking tray.
