Did you know cauliflower is packed with nutrition? Yeah, shocking I know. It's easy to be fooled by its lack of color.
At our house we are trying to include new foods into our meals. Foods we don't always pick up at the grocery store, to get more balance and variety, to have more fun... to find new recipes.
Cauliflower contains potent antioxidants that reduce inflammation making it an excellent disease-fighter. One cup has a full dose of the daily value for vitamin C, and it's a good source of fiber and folate.
Salty. Crunchy. Warm. Fresh. Light. Zesty.
They would make a terrific party appetizer or weeknight sides that's a little less than ordinary.
