Paprika Baked Cauliflower Chia Pasta

Cauliflower ... I Can't Get Enough ...

I began by slicing in half THREE LARGE cauliflower florets. I sprinkled them with olive oil and paprika and baked them in the oven (preheated to 350) for about 30 minutes. NOTE: I put them on non-stick aluminum foil for easy clean up ... and no need to add extra oil).

I love finding ways to incorporate cauliflower in my diet as it is high in fiber and Vitamin C as well as it contains folate, potassium, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin K.  

Chia Pasta from SOW,  Seeds of Wellness

I love to use Chia Pasta! There are a variety of gluten free pastas on the market and this one stands out for its texture, flavor, and nutritional value. It is a nutrition boost to any meal! Chia seeds contain 45 times more protein than chickpeas, 10 times more omega 3s than salmon, and 4 times more iron than spinach. If I have the opportunity to increase the nutritional value of a meal without sacrificing taste,  I will not think twice! SOW Pasta is an easy addition/substitution into any pasta meal!
