Cauliflower is an important vegetable, as it is a member of the “cruciferous” family, touted for their cancer-preventing properties! Cauliflower also has only 25 kcals per cup and can be prepared in many different ways. Here’s a way to serve it that will surprise your taste buds! The picture is from an article written about my hands-on cooking and nutrition classes, as the reporter visited class on the night that we made this delicious recipe and her photographer snapped a shot of it to put with the article.
One head of cauliflower, grated in a food processor or with a box grater
3 red tomatoes, diced
4 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp vegetable broth (in place of oil)
1/3 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce (or Bragg’s)
4 scallions, minced
salt and pepper
fresh mint (optional)
Toss the grated cauliflower in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste. For a variation, add several tablespoons of chopped fresh mint.
