Cauliflower contains a heap of vitamin C, in fact 1 cup of cauliflower contains 120% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C for adults. It is also a source of folate and vitamin B6. Cauliflower is a good source of fibre which helps keep you regular and is low in fat, sugar, and sodium (salt). You can use cauliflower as an alternative to mashed potato on your cottage pie, grated as “rice” for fried rice recipes, cut length–wise into thick steaks and grill on the BBQ, or roast a whole head and use as a centrepiece for your Sunday roast.
I don’t own a food-processor (I grate the cauliflower) but if you do, it will make things a bit quicker. This recipe is a winner in our family, you can have it cold in summer or warm in winter, have as a side dish or a meal – it’s a great way to get an extra serve of vegetables into your day.
