Cauliflower, a generally healthy vegetable high in vitamin C and vitamin K, low in calories and has hidden risks for some people. Cauliflower is quite high in fiber, which is beneficial for overall health. There are 3 grams of fiber in one cup of cauliflower, which is 10% of daily requirement need.

Similar to other cruciferous vegetables, cauliflower is particularly high in glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, two groups of antioxidants that have been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells.

Roasting, boiling and braising are some of the simple ways that cauliflower can be prepared. To cook, a paring knife can be used to remove the florets from the stalk, which can then be blanched in a pot of boiling water.

It works well with salty elements like anchovies, olives and capers, as well as rich, smoky bacon and speck. Cauliflower also plays nicely with cream, butter, eggs, and nuts. Cauliflower also makes a great topping for pasta.
