5/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 12. May 2013 05:03

Many people think of cauliflower like they do brussels sprouts.  Yuck.  I happen to love them both.  It happens to be one of the most nutritious vegetables, packed with folate, fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K.

Steaming cauliflower is a pretty ordinary flavor, though you can dress it up with low salt chicken broth, or spicy flavor blends and I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter spray.  Steaming is defiantly the quickest way to cook it.  You can dress it up further for your kids by sprinkling it with parmesan, or a low fat cheese.

Try roasting it in a pan, dressed with your favorite flavors, for a richer taste.  Bake it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
