Did you know cauliflower can be used not only as a substitute for mashed potatoes (which can be made so delish and similar to the real thing, you’d almost swear you were scarfing down potatoes!), but also as a great substitute for rice and couscous? You can even make pizza crust, pudding and buttery popcorn from it. See below links for recipes. Cauliflower comes in a variety of colors from white to purple to green and my favorite, orange. It “is also rich in nutrients and, like its cousins, cabbage, kale, and broccoli, provides health-promoting compounds not found in many other vegetables” – see the World’s Healthiest Foods – Cauliflower. Bonus, one cup of cooked cauliflower is only 29 calories.
