Cinnamon Cauli Pie

There are so many uses for cauliflower! And no, it is not just good in savory dishes.  That's right, you can use it in sweet dishes too! Like in this delicious Cinnamon Cauliflower Pie.
I guarantee this will not taste like cauliflower! It will be sweet and creamy and cinnamon-y!

Let's get started.
You need one head of cauliflower, cinnamon protein powder, egg substitute, fat free cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder, salt, and sweetener of choice.
*You can use frozen cauliflower too*
*Sub anything creamy for cream cheese such as greek yogurt, cottage cheese, ricotta...
*Use vanilla protein if you must and just add more cinnamon*

First you need to chop up, steam, and puree your cauliflower.  There is no exact measurement here.  I used whatever fit in my steamer.  It was about 500 grams...
Should look just like mashed potatoes!

Stir in the rest of your ingredients and mix it up good.
Now it should look like brown mashed potatoes :)

Pour into whatever kind of baking dish you want to use.  It can be square, rectangle, round...
I like to top it with some cinnamon/sweetener mixture. Makes it extra pretty and tasty.

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Obviously you may need to adjust your baking time if you use a smaller or bigger pan.
Perfection!!! See how pretty the cinnamon we put on top looks.

You will get about 6 pieces from this, but I usually eat it all by myself! I am starting to think I am a very selfish person?! At least with my food...
That's because the whole dish only has 290 calories!! Is also packs about 44 grams of protein.  

Now, I know there is a whole head of cauliflower in this, but I SWEAR you cannot taste it!! The cauliflower gives it a super creamy texture!
It is soft and moist and sweet and just awesome! Also, a great way to sneak in some veggies!! Go make it now!
