Cauliflower has excellent health benefits and few of them are:

Firstly, cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

In addition to that, Cauliflower provides a significant amount of antioxidants, which are beneficial for reducing inflammation. This helps in natural protection against several chronic diseases like heart diseases and cancer.

Moreover, Cauliflower can replace grains and legumes in many recipes like cauliflower rice, rotis, mash, and many. In fact, this is a great way to eat more veggies and to follow a low-carb diet.

Also, I would like to mention the cleaning process of the cauliflower. As you may know that cauliflower is one of the vegetables in which lots of pesticides are used while growing. Before the grown cauliflowers reach the market, lots of chemicals are added again for preservation. Therefore before consuming, it is always suggested to clean the florets thoroughly. First, wash them in clean running water and blanch (just dip) in hot water for few minutes. This helps in removing the extra unwanted chemicals if any.
