Who would have thought that the humble cauliflower would be upgraded to super food status?
Being a rich source of vitamins such as vitamin K and C, and packed with plenty of minerals such as folate, potassium, magnesium and iron, it’s easy to see why. Viewed as one of the ‘good’ white foods, it is non-starchy, a source of protein, and ideal for gluten free, low carb and plant-based diets. Another bonus with cauliflower is that it is a very versatile ingredient for dishes. We’re not just talking cauliflower and cheese soup (as tasty as it is), or as a side with a roast.
It is now being used for making pizza bases and being pulsed into cauliflower ‘rice.’ There are even roasted cauliflower steaks and more recently cauliflower buffalo wings – it’s come a long way.

From what we can see, this cruciferous vegetable deserves to be hobnobbing with the star superfoods!
