Cauliflower Power

Low in carbs, fats, and sugars, and naturally packed with vitamin C, cauliflower is the super-est of all superfoods. Why cauliflower? It’s a chameleon and can take on any flavour and texture.

In her first cookbook, food blogger and recipe developer Lindsay Grimes Freedman brings her expertise in creating delicious, healthful, and practical recipes to one of the food world’s most trending topics: cauliflower.

With more than 75 recipes built around the five ways to prep cauliflower (as a whole head, florets, steaks, riced, and meal), Freedman transforms this versatile veggie into smoothies and scones, pizza crusts and pasta sauces, and sides and salads. Super swaps include falafel made with cauliflower and Caesar salad made with a cauliflower-based dressing, even cauliflower nachos, “bacon” bits, tots, and French toast.

The recipes are healthful and easily adaptable for any diet without skimping on flavour or satisfaction. By harnessing the power of this anti-inflammatory veggie, readers will reap all the benefits of a plant-based diet without missing out on any of the good stuff.

Cauliflower Power: 75 Feel-Good, Gluten-Free Recipes Made with the World’s Most Versatile Vegetable is available at Amazon.com an Indigo.ca.
