Having stuffing in any way leading up to Thanksgiving is my favorite way of celebrating November. The minute November hits, I love making up ways to enjoy this delicious and savory bread concoction. Even though I have made it in so many different forms, I became so incredibly excited to pair it with cauliflower. Unsure of how it would taste after baking, we were completely thrilled by how amazing it came out. This cauliflower stuffing bake was everything we wanted in a stuffing dish and was a healthy and light weeknight dinner.
With savory stuffing and fresh cauliflower, this healthy and flavorful dish can be enjoyed as a side or as a main. It is especially perfect for Thanksgiving. When we created this idea, we had no idea how satisfying and savory it really would be. Dan was especially surprised with how he could picture himself eating it more frequently. Even though cauliflower was the main ingredient, it was still incredibly satisfying and the perfect ingredient to combine with my coveted stuffing.
Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday. It could be that my birthday falls around Thanksgiving, or the fact that comfort food is the most celebrated thing, but I look forward to this holiday every year. I love how eating all day is perfectly acceptable on this day. I also love how all of the dishes are saved up all year to just be enjoyed on one day. Dan and I obviously do not follow the rule of eating Thanksgiving foods only on Thanksgiving. We have had so much fun experimenting with Thanksgiving foods and eating stuffing in so many different ways. Since we do not host Thanksgiving, practicing and enjoying these foods before the big day is our way of making the holiday last longer. We also get to create our own menu that just the two of us get to enjoy each day leading up to Thanksgiving.
