“Cauliflower is a versatile and super nutritious vegetable. It is a great source of vitamin C, protein, fiber, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and others. At the farmer’s market, look for different colors including, purple, green, and orange. The orange variety has added carotene and is 100 times richer in vitamin A than its pale cousin! Cauliflower can be used in place of rice, pasta, and potatoes in many recipes. I decided this gratin would taste a lot like a mac and cheese --- and I was right!”-Wendy Cannon, a cooking instructor at the Doctor Yum Project Kitchen
