10th December

Some vegetables are more popular than others. Some vegetables have a bad reputation, especially those we had served at school dinners. Today’s vegetable is one of the ones with a bad reputation – often served overcooked, mushy and full of water.

Today I want to encourage you to try cauliflower.

Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, molybdenum and vitamin B6. Many people smother this vegetable in cheese sauce, which is a good source of calcium but also a rather high fat way of consuming this vegetable. Today’s recipe is from the British Heart Foundation and brings cauliflower and lentils together in a curry for a fibre rich meal. If you haven’t got time for this one, try raw cauliflower dipped in homous for a quick snack.
