Part of the cabbage family of vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, cauliflower is nutritious and delicious. Some benefits include:
-Vitamin A, C and K and minerals like manganese and potassium
-Very low in calories
-High in fiber
-High in Sulphur and an anti-oxidant called glucosinolates which boosts detoxification in the body.
Here's a delicious and really simple recipe you can have as a side dish:
Chop the cauliflower and place in a steam basket for 7-8 minutes or until softened but not too soft
Transfer to a bowl and squeeze lemon, add olive oil, cumin, sea salt and black pepper
Serve as a side dish to a meaty stew or a vegetarian bean dish
QUICK HEALTH TIP! - The acidity of the lemon, the compounds in the cumin and the healthy fats in the extra olive oil help you better digest the cauliflower as well as absorb the vitamins and minerals found in the cauliflower.
