Want to hop on the cauliflower bandwagon? Whether the cauliflower trend sticks around or fades away it’s one trend you can feel good about following because just one cup (250 mL or 113 grams) of cauliflower has 28 calories, 2.2 grams protein, 5.6 grams carbohydrate, 2.2 grams sugar and only 0.32 grams fat. Okay so what does that mean for you?
It means it’s really versatile. You can cook it as is, chop it into cauliflower rice (or buy ready-made), even make it into a pizza crust. Yes, you can even count it as one of your daily servings of vegetables. It’s a good low carbohydrate substitute for white or brown rice (helpful for diabetics), and makes a nice gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat-based crust.
You’re like, “That’s great but I’m hungry now.” Okay, then the following cauliflower recipe is for you. Be adventurous and experiment with your favourite spices. Cauliflower is a champ. It can handle it. It’ll absorb any flavours you throw at it.
