Why make cauliflower recipes?
When it comes to vegetables, variety is key! The USDA recommends for optimal health that we eat a variety of vegetables from all of the subgroup – meaning green, red, orange, purple, yellow, and even white! When your goal is to make half your plate fruits and vegetables, you’ve got to get creative!
Different vegetables contain different nutrients. Preparing veggies like cauliflower in a variety of recipes can majorly change the taste and turn you from a hater to a fan with the right recipe. Changing the way we cook cauliflower and the foods we serve with them, is the best way to find how you like to eat cauliflower, even if you previously were not a fan.
