How to cook a low-carb roast dinner with... roasted whole cauliflower

That’s right – the humble roast has once again been voted as the nation’s favourite meal. In response to a YouGov survey on general eating habits, participants across Britain have chosen the traditional roast dinner as their most-loved meal.

A similar survey carried out by Currys PC World found that people from England, Scotland and Wales are increasingly exploring low-carb and other dietary options for both cooking and eating. In particular, participants from the North East of England and the South West of England had the greatest interest in low-carb meals, with 21% of survey respondents in both regions reporting that they’d eaten a low-carb meal in the past month. Wales was close behind with 18% of respondents reporting the same.

With 16% of British survey respondents stating that they had eaten a low-carb meal in the past month, it’s clear that people across Britain are increasingly taking a fresh approach to cooking. With that in mind, we asked Vicki Montague from the Free From Fairy blog to take a low-carb approach to Britain’s favourite meal.
