15 Cauliflower Recipes To Keep You Healthy

Brassica oleracea has a long history. The oldest record dates back to the 6th century. From Syria to France, it has been grown for more than a thousand years. If you are wondering, the other name for Brassica oleracea is cauliflower.

Cauliflower is stashed with nutrients. It is low in fat, low in carbohydrates, and high in dietary fiber, folate, water, and vitamin C. This particular vegetable is highly recommended by WHFoods.
