Have You Tried Cauliflower Lately?

I’ll admit cauliflower was never my first choice or my favorite choice.  My mother used to steam it and it didn’t seem to have much flavor as the carrots or broccoli.  I decided to give cauliflower another try and find out all of its many benefits.  Let’s talk about the benefits of cauliflower.  Cauliflower has large amounts of vitamin C and vitamin B-6.  It is also contains high levels of potassium as well as iron and magnesium.  It also is a good source of choline.  Choline helps to promote a healthy brain and cell growth.  It also contains glucosinolates which helps to fight colon and breast cancer.  And because of its low levels of sugars, sodium and fats it can also help aid in Weight Loss.  

There are so many ways I have learned to cook with cauliflower than just a boring steam style the way my mom used to.  My favorite is to saute it with sesame oil.  I cut the head into 4 parts then slice each part to saute.  The flavor is amazing and I love the little crumbly pieces!  You can also use cauliflower to make a delicious soup.  I recently had cauliflower rice and it was so good.  How will you give cauliflower a try in your next dish
