Gardein Holiday Roast

1 head cauliflower
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped super fine
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon neufchatel cheese
salt & pepper to taste

1lb fresh green beans
2 cups pecan halves (lightly chopped)
2 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS sugar
4 TBS unsalted butter

2 cups raspberries
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup sugar



First you'll want to follow the directions on the box of your Gardein Holiday Roast, since this item takes the longest! It's the simplest preperation though, with a pan and an oven you can get this baking quickly!


Next we're going to start in on the mashed cauliflower. You'll want to break the head of cauliflower apart into flourets. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below where the steamer sits. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, which typically takes about 10 minutes!

While the cauliflower is steaming, you can start the oil and chopped garlic in a small skillet at a medium heat. Let the garlic simmer for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

Now that everything is steaming and simmering, you should start to rinse and cut green beans. Bring water in another saucepan to a boil and place green beans into boiling water. Let green beans boil for 5 minutes, depending on desired consistency.

You'll want to boil the raspberries along with the sugar and water, letting the mixture sit on medium heat for about 20 minutes, strain out seeds, and serve.

Rinse the green beans with cold water and set aside. Now you'll want to remove the cauliflower from the steamer, placing half of it into a blender with the garlic oil mixture, grated Parmesan cheese, and neufchatel cheese. Mix until well blended, add in remainder of cauliflower, and continue blending until it resembles mashed potatoes. Remove from blender, mix in salt and pepper to taste and add a layer of shredded cheese.

Now let's focus on the green beans again... well, a delicious green bean addition anyways. Melt the butter in a pan on medium-high heat until it gets slightly "foamy". Add sugar and pecans, stirring on and off for the next 8 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium, add in the green beans, and toss. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes, stirring regularly. Reduce heat even more and let simmer until ready to serve.

Now that your sides are done, your Gardein Holiday Roast should be finished baking any time now! You'll want to remove that deliciousness from the oven and serve everyone an amazing meal that they can be thankful for all year round!
