This is one of my very favorite recipes on this diet plan because cauliflower covered in creamy ranch, topped with sliced avocado, and wrapped in buttery lettuce manages to be both a light and filling meal at the same time, with an incredibly fresh flavor combination. This recipe also calls for fresh spices like curry powder, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. It's the perfect diet-friendly lunch– yet tastes like a delicious reward.
