Pack It: 5 cauliflower recipes that deserve your attention | Bon Appetit


In case you missed it, cauliflower is officially the new kale of 2014 — and for the most part, it really deserves this title.

This vegetable can grilled, roasted, barbecued, blended, mashed, eaten raw or made into rice or crusts for people who following a gluten-free diet. Not only is cauliflower incredibly versatile in cooking, it has tons of health benefits nutritionists and doctors can't get enough of.

Great for your liver, cauliflower is known to flush out toxins, help with digestion and act as an antioxidant, according to 3 Fat Chicks.

One head of cauliflower (yes, it does look like a brain), is about 210 calories, while a 100 gram serving counts towards 80 per cent of your daily vitamin C intake — that's a lot!

And in case you missed it, last week we packed raw foods.


Here's what you need to buy this week, while the other necessary ingredients (like pepper, salt and oils) are likely already in your kitchen.
