Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups 2% cottage cheese
  • 1 cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded, reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the cauliflower in boiling water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well and pat dry using paper towels (be sure to remove as much liquid as possible to avoid cauliflower soup).
  2. In a large bowl, mix cottage cheese, yogurt, egg, salt, dry mustard, turmeric, garlic powder, pepper and cheese. Stir in cauliflower.
  3. Transfer mixture to a lightly greased baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with chopped green onion.
