8 Creative Ways to Cook with Cauliflower
I’ve never been a trendspotter. I was the last of my friends in highschool to get a perm, was convinced texting would be a passing phase, and still haven’t downloaded a single song from itunes. Despite my poor track record on trends, listen up when I tell you this:
CAULIFLOWER IS THE NEW KALE
It’s not that I think kale is going the way of Crocs, but it is time for something new to take the spotlight in the produce aisle. And though as a kid we ate cauliflower exactly one way — steamed — it’s a vegetable that lends itself to major innovation. It also happens to be immensely good for you — a powerhouse of vitamin C, and a good source of vitamin K, several B vitamins, and fiber.
With all of that in mind,I reached out to some of my food-loving friends and gathered up these inspired ideas for getting busy in the kitchen with cauliflower.
