Cauliflower is one of the cruciferous vegetables which have fantastic health benefits: High in Vitamin C, K, B6, B2, Folate, Panthothenic Acid, Potassium and Manganese. It contains anti-oxidants has anti-inflammatory benefits and supports cardivascular health. The fiber content of cauliflower, over 9 grams in every 100 calories, makes this cruciferous vegetable a great choice for digestive support.
When purchasing cauliflower, look for a clean, creamy white, compact curd in which the bud clusters are not separated. Spotted or dull-colored cauliflower should be avoided.
Heads that are surrounded by many thick green leaves are better protected and will be fresher. As its size is not related to its quality, choose one that best suits your needs.
