Cauliflower is low in fat and carbs, while being high in nutrients. You might have come across not only the common white variety, but also orange and purple.

Quick ways to prepare Cauliflower

Cauliflower is often eaten raw, the florets perfect for dipping. It's also a great substitute for many grains when chopped finely and used in cold salads.

Boiled and Steamed
While boiling cauliflower is common, it is probably the worst method for destroying nutrients. A much better option is steaming, which better preserves the nutrition and look of the vegetable. When steaming, try and cut your cauliflower pieces to a similar size and check for softness with a fork after about 10 minutes.

This delicious method of preparation is simple in any oven. We'll be posting a recipe soon to show you how roasting works best.
