Easy Cauliflower Fry

 

           Cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage and kale, contain compounds that may help prevent cancer.  Cauliflower contains phytonutrients that release odorous sulfur compounds when heated. These odors become stronger with increased cooking time. If you want to minimize odor, retain the vegetable’s crisp texture, and reduce nutrient loss, cook the cauliflower for only a short time. Cauliflower also contains vitamin C and folate. Three florets of cauliflower a day will provide you with 67% of your daily vitamin C requirement. Cauliflower spiced with turmeric is believed to inhibit the spread of some forms of cancer.
