Cauliflower has become the new cream cheese – Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. It is a very good source of choline, dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, phosphorus, and biotin. This healthy snack is easy to prepare and packed full of flavour. It’s paleo, vegan and gluten-free but don’t tell the guests!
