Israeli Cauliflower

Although it’s riced counterpart has taken the spotlight lately, we can’t forget about the intact whole head of cauliflower. With this flavor combination, it will be the star of your next meal! Cauliflower may be less colorful than other veggies, but it’s still a great source of Vitamin C (meets 77% of your daily needs), fiber, and Vitamin K. It’s also a good source of folate and B6. It’s great for digestion, brain, heart, and bone health and can help detox the body. Let me know what you think of this one!
