Place whole cauliflower in a slow cooker & have a tasty meal in no time



1 large whole cauliflower

4 cloves garlic, minced

4 tablespoons melted butter

1 tablespoon finely chopped sage

1 lemon, juiced and zested

1½ teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon pepper

¾ cup powdered Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


Prepare the Cauliflower: If your cauliflower comes with greens, keep them intact. Place the whole cauliflower into your slow cooker.

Create the Butter Mixture: In a small mixing bowl, combine the garlic, melted butter, chopped sage, and lemon zest. Pour and rub this mixture over the entire cauliflower, ensuring even coverage.

Add Seasoning: Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over the buttered cauliflower, followed by a thorough covering of powdered Parmesan cheese.

Add Lemon Juice: Instead of pouring the lemon juice directly onto the cauliflower, disperse it around the sides within the slow cooker.

Cooking: Allow the cauliflower to cook on a low setting for 5 hours, or alternatively, on a high setting for 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Remove and Add Parsley: After cooking, carefully extract the cauliflower from the slow cooker and add parsley, mixing it with the liquid remaining from the cooking process.

Serve: Slice the cauliflower and generously pour over the parsley-infused cooking liquid as a sauce.

Enjoy: This dish pairs beautifully with grilled chicken or fish, but can equally stand alone as a hearty vegetarian option.

Pro Tip: Those green cauliflower leaves? Absolutely edible! Including them not only prevents unnecessary waste but also adds a delectable, leafy component to your dish.
