Learn how to make this creamy vegan mashed cauliflower that is full of vitamins and nutrients!

You bought a cauliflower because you know it is healthy but you literally don’t know what to do with it? Got you!

This happened to me so many times, but now that I managed to tame this cruciferous, I love getting creative with it. Actually, cauliflower is, in my opinion, so underrated. Since it has a neutral flavor, it is so versatile and so many flavors can be added to it. One of my all times favorite recipes is my Cauliflower Chickpea Curry.

But most importantly, cauliflower is so healthy for you. Actually, it contains almost all the vitamins and minerals that you need!

It is a great source of antioxidants (which help reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system) and fibers (which are essential for a healthy gut).

Moreover, cruciferous contains sulforaphane, which has been proven to have anti-cancer properties and to prevent cancer cell growth (1, 2, 3).

If that doesn’t make you want to eat cauliflower, I don’t know what will! Learn how to make creamy vegan mashed cauliflower, you will love it!
