Cauliflower is an incredible vegetable to include in your diet in both its raw and cooked forms. It's full of nutrients and is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health.
Cauliflower is high in vitamin C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. There are powerful anti-cancer compounds in cauliflower such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.
Cauliflower contains a compound called Di-indolyl-methan (DIM) which has been shown to be effective in the treatment of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical dysplasia. It also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties due to its omega-3 and vitamin K content and is an essential food for those trying to prevent chronic inflammation as in fibromyalgia, hepatitis, arthritis, cardiomyopathy, cystic fibrosis, IBS, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Cauliflower has also been found to help protect the lining of the stomach which is vital for preventing bacterial overgrowth of H. Pylori in the stomach. It's also known to be an effective detoxifier for the liver and spleen and can aid in cleansing toxins from the blood, lymph, tissues, and organs.

The possibilities are endless!
Cauliflower Rice With Indian Spiced Salsa
1) To make cauliflower rice, pulse cauliflower florets in a food processor until rice texture is formed. Do not over crowd the food processor. Pour cauliflower rice into a serving bowl and set aside.
2) To make the salsa, place garlic, ginger, red onion, and sage into the food processor and pulse 3 to 4 times until roughly chopped.
3) Add tangerines and tomatoes, continue pulse blending until a chunky salsa is formed.
4) Over a bowl, strain the salsa into a nut milk bag or cheese cloth and gently squeeze to remove moisture. Place dry salsa back into the food processor. Save the liquid, it’s delicious!
5) To the salsa in the food processor, add all remaining spices and pulse 3 to 5 more times until well combined.
6) Top cauliflower rice with salsa and enjoy!
- You can always add avocado if desired!
- The salsa will keep for three to four days, but the cauliflower rice is best made fresh.
- If you have a family to cook for, try tossing cauliflower florets in a little coconut oil and all of the dry spices. Roast in a 400° oven for 25 minutes, flip halfway through. Pair it alongside brown rice and avocado for a great dinner bowl!
