Baked Cauliflower With Healthy Peperonata Sauce


Well Hello, there my dear readers. I’m alive and finally back from this madly long holiday season which happens to be the most unhealthy one.

January is one of the most stressful months of the year: you have to pull yourself together after partying line an animal or being on omnivore for a month, go back to work, start eating healthy and finally pay a visit to the gym. I’m sure that most of you have been swearing in your NYE resolutions to start eating normal foods, drink less alcohol etc, etc.

The bad news is: Mondays will never make you lose weight, so won’t any first day of the month. The good news: your commitment and passion to your “lose weight” resolution will definitely do something good! So why wait for tomorrow when you can start cooking healthy today?

Since my NYE resolution includes healthy food and a weight loss program I will be publishing more healthy recipes with detailed nutrition and a pinch of fanciness. Because who said that healthy food can’t be fancy?

Today we are making baked cauliflower with rich and delicious pepper sauce.

2 servings


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp. yoghurt from goat’s milk (or usual)

  • 2 Bell peppers
