Like cilantro, you either love it or hate it. I’m talking Cauliflower!
Personally, I don’t know many people who don’t like Cauliflower, but I’ve seen the loathing online when it comes to this nutritious vegetable! Cauliflower is one of several vegetables in the species Brassica oleracea family which also include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, and kale. The milky, sweet, almost nutty flavor of cauliflower is prime from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful. Raw cauliflower is firm yet a bit spongy in texture.
Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid (B5), and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine). It is a very good source of choline, dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, phosphorus, and biotin. Additionally, it is a good source of vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), proteins, and potassium. Cauliflower is an excellent addition to family meals and most recently, has been playing a huge part in people looking to lower refined carbohydrates out of their diets.
Cauliflower is being used to make a healthy pizza crust, taco shells, fried “rice” and now Tater Tots.. only no Tater!
Today, I’m sharing one of my favourite ways to serve cauliflower that could very well fool any cauliflower hater out there! These delicious Oven Crispy Baked Cauliflower Tots are very easy to make, healthy, and delicious!
All you have to do is coarse chop the head of cauliflower, pulse it in your food processor, Combine the rest of the ingredients, form them into the shape of little tots and bake!
Bake them in the oven for 15 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes. I like to leave mine in just a little longer because we like them extra crispy!
