At only 27 Calories a cup! I just had to cook with this Veggie!

December 10, 2013 2 min read

While you don’t have to eat cauliflower every day, you should try to work it into your vegetable rotation once a week. Cauliflower, among the cruciferous vegetables has a good proportion of sulphur compound and is also known to support the liver’s ability to neutralize toxins. The members of this family also have the ability to prevent cancers. Read below to find out more about its multiple health benefits. Here are some Stats on Cauliflower:
  • It’s rich in the mineral boron, which is said to be an aid in building muscle and increasing testosterone levels.
  • It's rich in fiber that not only helps with lowering cholesterol it also helps clean your digestive system.
  • It's rich in Vitamin C an antioxidant that boosts the Immune system amongst other benefits.
  • It's rich in potassium just like a banana but lower in calories. 1 cup of chopped cauliflower contains only 27 calories. Compared at 105 for a banana.
  • It's rich in Vitamin K and Omega-3 which decrease inflammation.
  • It's rich in zinc, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium and also selenium and sodium.
Now lets cook up a delicious, simple, low calorie meal but that's filling and nutritious. My thoughts are that this would be a nice soup to also serve throughout the Holidays as a starter. Velvety Cauliflower Soup Serves 4 1 Medium Cauliflower head 1 Shallot, chopped 2 1/2 cups veggie broth 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil Salt & Pepper to taste In a medium pot over the stove add your olive oil once heated add the shallot, allow to saute until golden. In the meantime chop up your cauliflower. Add to the pot with shallots stir and add in you broth, bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes. Place in a blender (or if you have an immersion blender u can use that too) add salt and pepper to taste and blend until smooth. Serve drizzled with some Extra virgin Olive oil and Chopped Parsley. Now enjoy. If you want to make it ahead you can and then just reheat it when you are ready to eat. I would suggest heating it in a pot though it adds that something to it. maybe it's the extra cooking but it taste even better. Velvety Cauliflower soup 2
