Grape Tomato and Cauliflower Cake Recipe For Anti-Inflammatory Diet

I love to share all the fun menu ideas including the ways to prepare the food that is truly making a difference in our lives. Today I share a grape tomato and cauliflower cake recipe for an anti-inflammatory diet.


turmeric spice helps with arthritis

I’m on a mission to find the facts when it comes to healthy living.  Over the years I’ve learned that some of the best places to find facts are from case studies and research that has been collected by University studies and Non-Profit Organizations rather than just following someone’s opinion.

Why Whole Grain Quinoa Flour?

I recently read that gluten products are bad for those who suffer from arthritis.  The report is from NaturalHealthReports.net   All-purpose flour is a member of the refined carbohydrate family and can drive up inflammation because the body processes them into sugar.  By eating less refined carbs this has helped my issues with carpal tunnel and my husband’s mild arthritis in his back that he doesn’t like to talk about ( shhh…..).

3 Food Choices for Arthritis

  1. An extra virgin olive oil used in this recipe is loaded with heart-healthy fats. Extra virgin olive oil has properties similar to non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs.
  2. Calcium and vitamin D are found in Parmesan Cheese used in this recipe that helps strengthen bones.
  3. Consuming foods from the allium family such as garlic found in this recipe showed fewer signs of early osteoarthritis (OA). Researchers believe the compound diallyl disulfide found in garlic may limit cartilage-damaging enzymes in human cells.

This recipe is great during the end of the garden season when you have plenty of extra herbs and tomatoes on hand to add to this recipe.  I think the fresh basil addition to this recipe is my favorite part.  There are so many great basil varieties out there but the globe or party pesto basil are my favorites.  Be sure to take advantage of the print recipe option below so you can add this to your kitchen notes. Keep scrolling to get the recipe!

  1. Hi – I make this recipe using whole wheat flour and add diced green chiles. So delicious I make it once a month or so. (I usually add a bit more turmeric than called for!)

    This looks and sounds amazing, Bren! I use turmeric as much as possible and find it especially great with eggs, any style. This is on my To Make List for sure. Thanks!

    1. Thank you for stopping by my page Nancy – this recipe is yummy! I recently added a tumeric plant to my dome garden. I can’t wait to share more about that with you soon.

  3. I love this recipe. I have been making it for awhile and Lost it I. So glad I found it again. Can you tell me if I can use egg whites instead of eggs?
