Twice Baked Cauliflower

This twice baked cauliflower recipe is a perfect low-starch side or comfort food that makes a great alternative to its high-carb cousin (twice baked potatoes).

It’s loaded with both fresh and dried herbs, such as sage, along with onion and celery, which you’re likely to associate with traditional bread stuffing. The roasted cauliflower breaks...
