Baked Cauli-Turmeric Poppers

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I love cauliflower! It’s such a versatile vegetable, it can be used as a creamy sauce base, as a great low calorie rice substitute, a great mash, in a healthy pizza base, as buffalo ‘wings’, and it’s delicious baked, sautéed and in soups!

Cauliflower is also a very healthy vegetable that belongs in the cabbage family and offers a range of health benefits such as protection from breast cancer, boosts heart health, acts as an anti-inflammatory, supports liver detoxification and also contains many vitamins, minerals and fiber.
