Health Benefits of Cauliflower and Pesto

Let’s talk about health and nutrition to start.

So what is really good about cauliflower anyway?


Did you know that cauliflower, just like
other cruciferous vegetables, has anti-cancer properties?

Check out another
recipe with cauliflower in it, combined with another cruciferous veggie, broccoli, which discusses the amazing nutritional components of these vegetables.

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, cauliflower pesto is a powerhouse of a meal that you should serve to your family.

Another thing about this pesto cauliflower is that it contains basil, which is one of the easiest
herbs to grow in your garden.

Basil is a rich source of vitamin A, K, calcium, manganese, and iron.

It has been noted as effective in reducing depression, relieving stress, slowing down aging, regulating blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

And most importantly, it just tastes absolutely amazing!

So what’s not to love about basil?

Cauliflower pesto also contains olive oil, which is a good fat that supports metabolism, enhanced energy levels, and cardiovascular health.

​What You Need to Make Cauliflower and Pesto Recipe

This amazing cauliflower pesto recipe involves only a few tools.

For instance, you will need a
food processor or a slicer shredder or even just a regular, yet high-powered blender.

First, you need to
make cauliflower rice, which is what you can do with those tools.

Then, you need to steam the rice for about 3 minutes in a microwave and press down with a spoon to get rid of excess liquid to the rice.

Actually, there are only 3 ingredients to this recipe - another thing that I like most about it. You only need your cauliflower, your pesto (I prefer to make my own), and feta cheese for that additional flavor and nutritional value.

If you’re ready to get started, let’s go whip up this super delicious cauliflower pesto recipe right now!
