Inspiration

I use cauliflower often in my cooking, as you may have noticed in my recipes. It's versatile and takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with, making it easy to sneak into lots of recipes to get some extra veggies. But I get bored of using cauliflower rice all the time. Sometimes I want to get some crunch out of my veggies.

I happened to have a head of cauliflower in the refrigerator. So I took out my favorite chef knife and chopped it up. I wanted to add some bold flavor to it, and I had the brilliant idea to add some buffalo sauce to it. You can use any kind you prefer, but I chose Cholula because it's my favorite. It's got a little heat and lots of flavor. Perfect to pair with cauliflower!

Beginning Steps

Once the cauliflower was cut up, I didn't want to have another dish to wash. Cauliflower can get messy, ya know? So I threw the pieces into a plastic bag with the seasoning, and mixed it that way. So much easier than using a dish, and the clean up was non-existent. If you've ever used cut up cauliflower, you know that the little pieces can get everywhere and be a nightmare to clean up. So a Ziplock bag seemed like the perfect idea. And it was.

Health Benefits of Cauliflower

Cauliflower is widely accepted as a healthy vegetable. But why? There's a lot of benefits to incorporating cauliflower into your regular diet. Here are some of the top reasons:

  • It's high in fiber. This can aid in weight loss, and help you feel full throughout the day. Also, fiber is super important to keep our digestive system functioning smoothly.
  • It's low in calories. This helps with weight loss too, which I, like many others have struggled with for decades. Even though it's low cal, it contains a bunch of important vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin K, B vitamins, and potassium.
  • It's a good source of antioxidants. This word is thrown around often, but what do antioxidants really do for us? They protect the cells in our body from free radicals and can help to reduce inflammation. Antioxidants and fiber may help reduce our risk of developing certain diseases, like cancer and heart disease.
