Submerged in the OLD list of “10 things you didn’t know about me” was the statement,
I am not a fan of cauliflower.
Because I am a smarty pants and know it is ultra good for you, I buy one head a month, steam, smash, freeze then hide in spaghetti sauce, pasta sauce, taco filling etc. No one is the wiser, I can’t taste it and we get the benefits here and there.
Benefits? What benefits you ask?
reduces cancer risks, can even kill some cancer stem cells, improves detoxification, balances hormones, has impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, and beta-carotene, fights inflammation, also has rich supplies of calcium and selenium and cauliflower keeps our immune systems running smoothly
My new list of 10 things you didn’t know about me, NO LONGER contains the blurb about cauliflower.
Thanks to Sam Turnbull and her blog, you too, can whip up this beauty.
Last night was life-changing. I ate HALF A CAULIFLOWER! Honestly, because I was a little bit of a piggie, I may have taken more than half.
Here’s the quick version: take apart a cauliflower, mix up some oil, nutritional yeast, garlic and chili powder, mix, bake at 450* until tender and toasty brown.
Serve with an AMAZING Maple Syrup Mustard dipping sauce (she gives you that dip recipe, along with several others.) Zowie, is it simple…. maple syrup, mustard, lemon juice, garlic power…. blend. done.
Say grace and then grab some napkins these will “sell” quickly.
Serve hot, warm or cold…dip those little puppies (no, not real puppies) in that amazing dipping sauce and before you know it….
Here are two snapshots that will tell you everything you NEED to know.
Now, may I gently suggest you make these tonight? You and your family are worthy of excellent nutrition. Heck, you don’t even need to explain all the benefits. Just bake them, serve with dipping sauce and put on a table everyone can reach.

In this together, friends.
