Due to its light color, cauliflower, one of my favorite vegetables, is often overlooked for being a nutritional powerhouse. However, it is low in calories (one filling cup contains only 25!) and packed with nutrients like fiber; Vitamins C (one cup contains 75% of the Recommended Daily Intake), K, and B6; and potassium, folate, and manganese. Cauliflower is also low in carbohydrates, and is often featured as a swap for higher-carb ingredients, like potatoes, in healthy recipes. Here, it is used as a substitute for everyone’s favorite movie snack, popcorn.
