How’s that for an endorsement?

Cauliflower is so healthy and I have shared cauliflower recipes with you in recent months. I made Baked Bread Cauliflower (with a peanut butter dipping sauce), Panko Baked Cauliflower (with a sriracha sauce), and Bang Bang Baked Cauliflower (They are dipped in buffalo sauce and dipped in peanut butter sauce.)

I first was inspired to make roasted cauliflower after having it with a peanut butter dipping sauce at a local restaurant. And, while the peanut butter sauce is outstanding. I wanted something just a little healthier, that and the fact that when I cleaned my pantry I had five jars of almond butter that was about to expire. The natural decision was to substitute almond butter for the peanut butter in this recipe.

Is cauliflower healthy?

  1. Cauliflower is nutrient-dense
  2. Contains anti-inflammatory agents
  3. Fights aging
  4. Good source of antioxidants
  5. It’s fiber-rich
  6. May aid in weight loss
  7. High in choline
  8. Low carb

 Now, I actually like the Almond Butter Dipping Sauce better! It’s great as a dip for vegetables, but also on noodles or a salad.

Almond Butter Dipping Sauce is rich and creamy with just a hint of heat.
