This Risotto recipe is a nice and simple way to enjoy a steaming hot bowl of grain free comfort food that is filled with goodness. I'm always looking out for new ways to use cauliflower - we frequently use it as a rice substitute, so creating risotto from it was a logical progression. Everyone here loved it and they all asked for seconds, not something that usually happens when I've served up a cauliflower recipe!
I consider cauliflower to be a super food and try to make sure my family eat it several times a week. Since my husband's brush with cancer 5 years ago, I have learned a lot about how the food we eat can help or hinder our health.
Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, brussel sprouts etc) are incredibly good for us being packed with vitamin C and other goodies; plus they are known to have several anti cancer properties as well as being good for heart health.
These types of vegetables contain goitrogens which can interfere with thyroid hormone production, so there is some debate as to the wisdom of eating them raw. My personal opinion on the raw vs cooked argument is that cooked is preferable.
