Cauliflower is closely related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale and cabbage. This vegetable can grow from eight to thirty inches in height and width. The color of the head depends on the variety. Although we generally see white, it can be green, purple, brown and yellow. Cauliflower is an excellent source of dietary fibers, vitamins C, K and vitamins of the B group and minerals such as manganese, potassium and magnesium. For a substitute to potatoes, steaming the cauliflower and mashing it with some sour cream and salt. It is also recommended to roast the vegetable in oil and parmesan cheese.
