Crushing for cauliflower
Did you know that one 5-6" head of cauliflower has 11g of protein, 12g of dietary fiber and just 1.6g of fat? No wonder it's trumped broccoli as the new superfood! It's also high in vitamin C and can be morphed into so many dishes you hardly know you are eating healthy! If you haven't joined in on the cauliflower craze, here are some amazing recipes to tempt your taste buds and take you to the lighter side of the table.
I LOVE Mexican food. I could eat it every day of my life. Here is a recipe I got from my March 2019 Women's Health Magazine for:
Cauliflower al Pastor Tacos
1/2 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets (3 C.)
8 oz Pineapple, cored and cut into bite-size pieces
2 T. Olive oil
2 tsp No-salt taco seasoning
8 Small corn tortillas, warmed
Pickled red onions, avocado, cilantro, and lime wedges, for serving
Heat oven to 425 degrees. On a baking sheet, toss cauliflower & pineapple with oil, taco seasoning and 1/2 tsp salt. Roast until golden brown (20-25 minutes). Top tortillas with cauliflower and chimichurri. Serve with pickled onions, avocado, cilantro and lime.
This next recipe is from my fav cookbook "Eat With Intention" by Cassandra Bodzak.
