If you’ve been on a low-carb diet lately, chances are you’ve traded mashed potatoes for mashed cauliflower or tried a pizza with cauliflower crust. The cauliflower craze is still in full bloom as cooking with cauliflower has become popular with everyone from in-home cooks to celebrity chefs.
This low-carb alternative to grains contains a number of nutrients, is high in fiber and is a good source of antioxidants which help protect your cells from inflammation.
Cauliflower is low in calories and high in vitamins, and is easy to add to your diet. You can steam it, roast it or sauté it. It has a distinct taste, but it seems to effectively assume the taste of whatever you’re looking for – mashed potatoes, rice, pizza crust or pancakes.
As plans for summer picnics and the Fourth of July take shape, you might consider cauliflower potato salad as a healthy alternative to traditional potato salad, substituting cauliflower for potatoes.
