You just can’t eat too many brassicas. The plant family of cruciferous vegetables, Brassica, contains nutritional powerhouses that are packed with potent, cancer-fighting phytonutrients (antioxidants). Members include arugula, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, horseradish/wasabi, kale, kohlrabi, mizuna, mustard greens, radish, rapeseed/canola, rapini, rutabaga, tatsoi, turnips, and watercress, among others.

It’s easy to eat a cup or more daily of veggies like broccoli and cauliflower, especially if you snack on the raw florets with a yogurt dip.

Thanks to My Chef Wave for the recipe. Here are two related recipes from The Nibble archives:

    February 17th is National Cabbage Day.

    The chef used the Intermix immersion hand blender to make whisking the potatoes a cinch.

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil (we substituted butter)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or substitute*
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 cup dairy, almond or oat milk
  • Garnish: butter, fresh dill or/and parsley

    1. STEAM fresh cauliflower until tender but crisp. If using frozen cauliflower, prepare according to package directions.

    2. HEAT the oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add onion and garlic, stirring often until the onion is softened.

    3. ADD the flour, whisking constantly, about 1 minute. Gradually add the milk, pepper, and parsley. Whisk until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and pour over cauliflower.

    4. GARNISH with a pat of butter and parsley sprinkled on top. (Tip: because there was parsley in the potatoes, we used dill for the garnish.)
