About this recipe
Cauliflower is one of my favourite brassica vegetables. It’s incredibly versatile, takes on so much flavour and has compounds with anticancer properties. Inflammation is recognised as one of the underlying causes of chronic disease and the anti-inflammatory compounds in this beautiful vegetable mitigate this.
