Cauliflower: A Love Story

Spicy Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower, oh cauliflower –
We hope you enjoy this, your shining hour!
Not too bland, not too sweet,
An amazing veggie we all love to eat.
From pizza crust and tacos,
To rice, mash and more.
It is easy to see why we adore
Your fair bright florets, glowing white like cream
Enticing, exciting, appetizing – as though from a dream!
Your fiber and vitamins make you a responsible treat –
Low carb, versatile and fun – can you even be beat?
We know here at Best
You’re not like the rest.
Season you spicy, season you mild,
Coat you in breadcrumbs – really go wild!
There’s very few ways to ruin your groove –
So with a resounding “Yum!!” we all approve.
Cauliflower! You, Cauliflower!
The vegetable of the hour!
We crown you head honcho! The King –
the veg with the power!
Without further adieu, and no offense to you –
Our kitchen is waiting – please do come through!

 

We’re not the only ones with cauliflower fever! When Green Giant first introduced its riced cauliflower in late 2016, it was harvesting five acres of cauliflower for the product each week. Now it is harvesting six times that amount, 30 acres! Over 100,000 heads of cauliflower each day!

The world is tapping into cauliflower’s uncanny ability to accentuate the flavors of the food around it – and we can’t get enough! Whether it’s a side dish, appetizer or centerpiece cauliflower is low carb while being a great source of fiber and vitamin C. People are using cauliflower in place of simple carbs like rice, flour, potatoes and more – and it’s easy to see why. A 100-gram serving of white rice contains 150 calories, 34 grams of carbs, and one gram of fiber, while a similar portion of riced cauliflower contains just 25 calories, five grams of carbs, and triple the amount of fiber!

With it’s low carb and gluten free properties, this whole food appeals to a variety of diets, from plant-based to Paleo. Here are some cauliflower recipes that showcase its superfood status firsthand!
