Cauliflower is naturally low fat, low carb (less starchy) vegetable. Cauliflower contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), and B9 (folic acid). It contains antioxidants like vitamin C and manganese. Health advocates often say eat your colors, and cauliflower is looked over because it is not colorful and vibrant as the other vegetables.
Add this as a vegetable side dish for dinner. It is so simple and easy… and of course delicious!
