10 Wonderful Ways with Cauliflower

Jacqueline Meldrum

Cauliflower is in season this month. It's a Winter staple that we all find a bit boring compared to all those Mediterranean vegetables that pop with colour and flavour. We shouldn't disregard it, it's a powerhouse of nutrients. It's super high in Vitamin C, it's full of antioxidants and it has Sulforaphane which is said to significantly improve blood pressure and kidney function.

Is there more to cauliflower?

Even though it's super healthy we don't do much with it. It often sits on the side of a plate or if it's lucky it's submerged in a thick cheesy sauce. Cauliflower is actually very versatile. It can be eaten raw, steamed, mashed, roasted or baked.  It's also had a bit of a resurgence recently as a diet food.  With only 25 calories in 100g and no fat you can understand why.
