My newest food obsession is Cauliflower. It really is a versatile amazing veggie! Not only is chock full of vitamins it is deeelish! Did you know that it a great Antioxidant as well?!?! As an excellent source of vitamin C, and a very good source of manganese, cauliflower provides us with two core conventional antioxidants. Beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid, quercetin, rutin, and kaempferol are among cauliflowers key antioxidant phytonutrients. This wonder veggie helps lower the risk of oxidative stress in our cells. Chronic oxidative stress (chronic presence over overly reactive oxygen-containing molecules and cumulative damage to our cells by these molecules) is a risk factor for development of most cancer types. Cauliflower helps lower our cancer risk by helping us avoid chronic and unwanted oxidative stress. (I looked all this up so trust it) 😉
I have tried a few recipes such as Cauliflower rice, Cauliflower mash here and my new fav, roasted Cauliflower! Yumm-o! It is soo easy Score! I like easy things. Heres what I did:
I took one head of cauliflower-washed & striped
Broke it up on a cookie sheet
Drizzled with olive oil
Season with whatever your lil heart desires. Garlic, salt & pep, spiceswhatever goes!
Bake at 350 for about 20 mins or until golden brown and cooked but not mushy.
Seriously it was sooo good! Even the boyfriend who was skeptical loved it.
