Cauliflower lends a nice nutty flavor and creamy consistency when puréed. In this version of garlic herbed mashed potatoes, we have added cauliflower and cheese to this holiday staple.
Cauliflower is classified as a cruciferous vegetable, along with other veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, and bok choy. Regular intake can provide us with photo-nutrients and glucosinolates, compounds known to reduce inflammation and lower our risk for developing cancer. Not only do we get these anti-cancer nutrients, cauliflower also is rich in fiber which will keep us feeling full and satisfied. This low – calorie vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals like folate and vitamin K.
Give this a try and see if you or your kids can spot the cauliflower!
