Cauliflower, as its name would suggest, is actually a flower. Its coarse green leaves typically cover the head, shielding it from sunlight, prevention the production of chlorophyll which would otherwise make the flower green.
Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C, and just like broccoli helps promote liver function and may prevent certain cancers.
Did you know that cutting cauliflower into small pieces actually makes it healthier? Cutting the vegetable breaks down its cell walls and helping to convert some of the plant’s nutrients into their active forms. To get the most health benefits from cauliflower, let it sit for 10 minutes after cutting in order to maximize its benefits. Pass the crudite!
