Cauliflower is the latest vegetable to be considered “hip.” It is a powerful superfood that has been a staple vegetable for a very long time.

Easy to purchase, there is no need to travel for miles to the latest raw food emporium. It is one of those traditional vegetables that is not going to cost you a lot.

It builds on the trend that “vegetables that our great grandmothers would have loved and eaten” are really good for you. Like brussel sprouts and silverbeet, cauliflower is the latest member of the brassica family to have its moment to shine.

Cauliflower Combines Great Taste and Nutritional Benefits

Cauliflower has some great nutritional benefits. One serving contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, magnesium, fiber and vitamin B6. It is a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

With its creamy florets and a flavour that ranges from the robust to an almost milky, sweet mildness, cauliflower is also grabbing the limelight due to its wonderful versatility.

Why This Cauliflower Recipe is So Unique

This recipe is a little different because it includes beetroot and sweet potato which also have great nutritional benefits. They also add beautiful colour and create a great taste. Something special happens when you roast cauliflower. It is so simple to prepare and adds both crunch and flavour to the Sunday roast.
