Cauliflower – The New “It” Vegetable?

With a few more weeks of winter left, you can still reap the benefits of winter seasonal vegetables. Kale has been in the spotlight for the majority of winter.. it is about time for it to move over and let another winter staple take center stage: cauliflower!

Cauliflower has a mild, sweet, and nutty flavor that works very well in an extraordinary amount of recipes.  Cauliflower can be fried, roasted, braised, baked, steamed, sautéed, purees, or even eaten raw.

Like other superfoods, cauliflower is packed full of good-for-you nutrients. It is high in folate, vitamin C, fiber, and sulforaphane (a beneficial compound that may protect again cancer).

Don’t let cauliflower take over like kale did for so long — be sure to eat a wide variety of colorful vegetables to get the most nutrition bang for your buck.
