Cauliflower is a hearty, healthy vegetable with a host of phyto-nutrients that support detoxifying. Even if you’re not trying to detox, you’d do well to have several servings of cruciferous vegetables each week. This and other recipes are available in my recipe booklet, Simple and Delicious: Recipes for Vitality. And check out the directions – these meals really are simple, wholesome, and super easy to prepare.
