Cauliflower

cauliflower

Winter is often associated with comfort food, which often means carbohydrates. Cauliflower can be your secret weapon in winter to provide all the same great tastes and flavours, minus the carbs! While we all know and love cauliflower gratin and steamed caulies, there are some great recipes around for cauliflower mash, which can be a low-carb alternative to pasta and rice. Grown throughout the year in WA, blanched cauliflower adds interesting texture to salads and cauliflower soup is impossible to resist any time of year.

While most cauliflowers are white, you can now get purple (Jacaranda) and orange (Orange Flower) cauliflowers, which look fantastic but also have a range of other nutritional benefits. If you have seen a lime green coloured cauliflower, it is probably a Broccoflower, which is a cross between a broccoli and a cauliflower.

The brassica family is well known for their cancer fighting properties and cauliflowers are no exception...
