I love cauliflower (Dr. B says, “Melissa never met a vegetable she didn’t like”). Ha, he’s right! I make a variety of delicious recipes using this vegetable. Cauliflower is very low-cal … a whole medium head is only 146 calories for goodness sake! It is rich in protein (11 grams), loaded with vitamin C, Iron, B-6, calcium, potassium and magnesium. The grocery stores are selling cauliflower in a variety of forms … cauliflower rice, cauliflower tots, and cauliflower pizza crust (see my recipe for this).
Cauliflower has a purple variety called Colorful Harvest Purple Cauliflower, equally as nutritious and versatile, that can be used in so many creative recipes and it tastes the same. When we were in Lake Tahoe, I first tasted cauliflower with a Romesco sauce chopped, served as cold salad. I just loved the flavors together. I came home and began to research the ingredients of the Romesco sauce since I had never tasted or made it before. My search revealed many recipes with slight variations. I hope you enjoy my adapted Power of 5 Test Kitchen Recipe as much as we do!
To healthy eating!
