Cauliflower is one of our new favourite autumn/winter vegetables. In my childhood I only have eaten it in pickled versions and frankly I had no idea about meals with cauliflower. Except that it’s tasty in pickles, it’s also suitable for soups, as a side dish or as a main dish, and it can perfectly replace broccoli or can be well combined with it…

Cauliflower is not only tasty but it’s also extremely healthy. It’s proven in many medical researches that it has anticancer and anti-inflammatory effect, it also has good effect on cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure.

It helps with stomach problems and hormonal imbalance. Due to its low caloric value and minimum amount of fat, it’s suitable for people who aim to reduce their weight. Cauliflower is also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.
