Cauliflower is emerging as the ultimate superstar of health.

By Foodtrients

Step aside kale, cauliflower is taking the spotlight as the ultimate health superstar. A member of the nutrition-packed, cruciferous cabbage family along with Brussels sprouts and broccoli, cauliflower is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich, and may boost both heart and brain health. Grace O, founder of FoodTrients, advocates eating cauliflower because it provides impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, beta-carotene, and much more while supporting healthy digestion and detoxification.

Rich in essential vitamins such as C, K, and beta-carotene, cauliflower not only supports heart and brain health but also aids in digestion and detoxification. Its sulfur compounds, known as indoles, actively combat cancer-causing agents while superoxide dismutase (SOD) fights off free radicals, promoting youthful skin and overall cellular health.

A great way to enjoy cauliflower is to bake it with olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can also add turmeric (another anti-inflammatory) to give it an extra nutrition boost, and mix it up color-wise with white, green, purple, and orange cauliflower.  Grace has provided a delicious recipe for Cauliflower Steaks with Herbed Goat Cheese from The Age Beautifully Cookbook  that is included below.

“I also add cauliflower to my Tofu Vegetable Stir Fry, which provides plenty of health-boosting vegetables,” Grace stated.  “In addition to the cauliflower and protein-packed tofu, it contains broccoli, a good source of lutein, which can help prevent macular degeneration. Both the cauliflower and the kale in the recipe have phytonutrients that protect against cancer. I like to use a wok to prepare this dish, but a large skillet will do. You can now enjoy cauliflower much of the year in some parts of the country, but its peak season is from September to June.”

Whether reinvented in trendy dishes or enjoyed in classic recipes, cauliflower is the go-to ingredient for those seeking a delicious and nutritious way to elevate their well-being. Join the cauliflower craze and unlock a world of health benefits today!

Cauliflower Steaks with Herbed Goat Cheese

Serves 4–6

These cauliflower steaks can serve as a vegetarian main course or sit beautifully alongside grass-fed, grilled rib-eye or Porterhouse steaks. Piment d’Espelette is the French version of paprika. It’s mild and full-flavored. You can use paprika or red pepper flakes (1 tsp.) instead.

Ingredients

2 Tbs. olive oil
1 head cauliflower, sliced into 1-inch sections
1 Tbs. butter, cut into small pieces
1 tsp. piment d’Espelette, divided in half (or try turmeric for a variation)
Salt or salt substitute and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4–5 oz. herbed goat cheese spread

Procedure
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Spread the olive oil in a large baking dish and lay the cauliflower slices in a single layer in the dish.
3. Dot with the butter pieces and sprinkle with half of the seasonings.
4. Roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
5. Turn the cauliflower over, sprinkle with the remaining seasonings, and roast another 20 minutes or until tender.
6. Allow the cauliflower to cool slightly. Place on a serving tray and dot with the goat cheese.
Chef’s Note: While slicing the cauliflower, some of the slices will fall apart. That’s okay.
