Now that it’s almost fall, cauliflower is in season! A lot of us are probably used to seeing this in a raw veggie tray with a dip to accompany it. It doesn’t have to be that bland! There are so many creative cauliflower recipes, and I’m rounding them up for you. Head to your local farmer’s market to get it fresh!
Benefits of eating cauliflower
Did you know cauliflower is in the cabbage family? This cruciferous vegetable is high in fiber and other essential nutrients. It’s full of antioxidants and low in carbs, making it the perfect rice substitute if you need to cut back. It’s great because you can eat it raw, dipping it in hummus or your other favorite dip. But of course there are so many ways you can cook it!
