Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable and ancestor to the wild cabbage, which originated in ancient Asia Minor. Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins C, K and foliate. It is also a very good source of fiber, boasting zero fat and few calories. Cruciferous vegetables are often known for their pungent odor due to sulfur compounds released when heated. These vegetables contain thousands of bioactive chemicals that interact in myriad ways to promote health.

Cauliflower is delicious, either raw or cooked. A healthy, tasty alternative to shrimp cocktail incorporates cauliflower in this easy-to-prepare appetizer. – Suzanne Forsberg, RD/LD, CDE, St. John Healthy Lifestyles
