Ramadan keto recipe: Spiced cauliflower and baked feta cheese

Monitoring Desk

A ketogenic diet mimics long hours of fasting over 24 hours. If people adhered to a low-carb diet after iftar, then they could achieve ketosis after 12 hours into the fast.

A ketogenic diet’s main energy source is ketones formed from fat metabolism. In fasting, when the body’s carbohydrates stored in the muscles and liver begin to deplete, the body will reset to an alternative source of energy which is stored fat e.g. ketones.

Cauliflower is a popular replacement for carbohydrates in a keto diet, replacing high-starch foods such as rice, and can be used to make keto-friendly bread.

Roasted cauliflower is a popular dish around the world, and different countries have different spices and seasonings for this recipe.

This Ramadan, we are showing you how to make keto spiced cauliflower and feta cheese.

You will need one medium cauliflower, 200g feta cheese, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp Ras El Hanout (Moroccan spice), 1 tsp chili powder, ½ tsp cumin, salt and pepper, chopped coriander, sliced chili, and toasted almonds.

Cut the cauliflower into equal-sized florets and put them in a roasting pan. Coat evenly with oil and spices, and roast them at 180 degrees Celsius for 22 to 25 minutes.

Once baked, take the pan out from the oven and add chunky pieces of crumbled feta cheese on top. Bake for another five minutes. Garnish with coriander, chili, and toasted almonds. Serve.
