Cauliflower is everywhere these days. It’s riced and served as a substitute for complex carbohydrates like mashed potatoes. Cauliflower pizza crust is wildly popular with those hoping to eat healthier.
Cauliflower has its own fresh taste, but one of the great things about this veggie is that it easily takes on other flavor. It makes a wonderful base to highlight other flavors from savory to salty and everything in between.
Here at Nayas Foods, cauliflower is the first ingredient in our Cauliflower Hummus. Our founder, Nadia Gara, created these hummuses by putting a twist on her family’s classic chickpea recipe so that her husband could eat it - talk about thinking outside of the box!
Here are some of the reasons we love this vegetable:
It helps your memory
Cauliflower contains choline, which assists in sleep, muscle movements, and memory. Let’s see your baguette do that!
Toss fresh cauliflower into your salad or whip up an Asian-inspired dinner - your brain will thank you.
It’s gluten-free and keto-friendly
Cutting out gluten or following a keto-only diet can seem restrictive, but cauliflower is here to help. This versatile vegetable is both keto and gluten-free, low calorie, and packed with nutrients. Often times, cauliflower serves as a replacement for starchy foods like mashed potatoes or even pasta.
It’s high in fiber
One cup of cauliflower contains about 10% of your daily fiber. Fiber can help you feel full and aids in digestion which makes for a very happy stomach.
Not only is it high in fiber, but cauliflower also has Vitamin C, Vitamin K, potassium, magnesium, and folate making it a nutritious addition to your snack time.
