It’s got phytochemicals! Fiber! Vitamin C! And a high intake of cauliflower has been found to reduce the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. (Cauliflower + Fight Gone Bad = suck it, prostate cancer!)
Fun fact: The fractal dimension of cauliflower is predicted at about 2.88.
It comes in varieties with adorable names:
- Super Snowball
- Snow Crown
- Candid Charm
- Snow White
- All the Year Round
- Early Pearl
- Violetta Italia
- Walcheren Winter
And it’s easy to cook, so you have no excuse.
1 head fresh or 10 oz. frozen
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Steam the cauliflower until tender, then toss with the spices. Spritz a non-stick pam with Pam spray and sautee the cauliflower ’til it’s a little brown and crispy.
- Mix in a few tablespoons of low-fat Greek yogurt to make a quick faux curry.
- Top with sliced black olives to add healthy fat.
- Squeeze a wedge of fresh lemon over the top to make it a little piquant.
