Fall Super Food Cauliflower

Versatile cauliflower is perfect for fall and winter side dishes. It’s delicious steamed, blended to create a mashed potato-like texture, pureed into soup or transformed into pizza crust.

Cauliflower is rich in vitamins and phytonutrients that work as health-promoting antioxidants in the body. Because cauliflower contains a broad range of super-nutrients, it helps to lower the damaging effect of oxidative stress in cells. This may help to lower cancer risk, inflammation, heart disease risk and cholesterol levels. Cauliflower is a good source of dietary fiber.

Cauliflower is in the same family as broccoli, kale, cabbage and collards. It is available year-round, but is at its best from December through March.
