  • 6sliceBacon
  • 6gram(s)Sage, fresh (1 leaf = 0.5 g)
  • 1tspSalt
  • 6cupCauliflower, florets, raw
  • 1cupHeavy Cream, liquid
  • 2ozCream Cheese
  • 1 1/2tspGround Mustard
  • 3gram(s)Garlic, raw ( 1 clove= 3g; 1 teaspoon= 5g)
  • 0 1/4tspBlack Pepper, ground
  • 1cupPumpkin, canned, mashed
  • 5ozGruyere Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and prepare a 9-inch by 9-inch baking dish with olive oil spray. Heat a large pot of water to boiling and add 1/2 tsp salt.  
  2. Chop bacon. In a medium skillet over medium heat, fry bacon until crispy. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate. Remove all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from the skillet. Thickly slice 4 grams of sage (about 8 leaves) and fry over medium heat in the bacon fat until crispy, about 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to remove the sage to the paper towel lined plate. Set aside bacon and sage.
  3. Remove stem and leaves from cauliflower.  Cut into small bite sized pieces and place in the boiling water; cook until crisp-tender; about 5 minutes.  Drain well then pat between paper towels to remove all moisture.
  4. In a medium sauce pan bring the cream to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk the cream cheese and powdered mustard into the simmering cream until smooth.  Stir in 2 grams minced sage (about 4 leaves), minced garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper. Whisk in pumpkin and 3-ounces shredded cheese until fully melted; about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cauliflower.  
  5. Pour into the baking dish and top with remaining 2-ounces shredded cheese.  Bake for 15 minutes until browned and bubbly. Top with bacon and fried sage and serve while warm. Each serving is about 3/4 cup.

Cooking Tip

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
