Super yum! If you're afraid of flavor don't eat :) I'm a flavor freak and this hit the spot!


  • 4 c. cauliflower
  • 3 tsp. coconut oil
  • 3/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 oz. uncured bacon
  • 1 tbs. garlic
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley
  • 1/2 c. pepper jack cheese
  • 24 sml. endive, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar


Preheat oven to 400°.

Arrange cauliflower florets in a single layer in a 13 x 9-inch metal baking pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil; sprinkle with black pepper and kosher salt, tossing to combine. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until cauliflower is lightly browned.

Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto to pan; sauté 10 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Add garlic to pan; sauté 1 minute. Drain on paper towels. Combine cauliflower mixture, prosciutto mixture, pepperjack cheese and vinegar in a large bowl; coarsely mash with a fork. Stir in chopped parsley. Spoon 2 tablespoons cauliflower mixture into each endive leaf. Serve warm or at room temperature.
