Cauliflower, like its close relatives broccoli, kale, and cabbage, provides many nutrients and health-promoting compounds. And with only about 5 grams of carbohydrates in 1 cup, cauliflower is also an excellent choice for a low carb diet.
The best methods for cooking cauliflower include roasting, stir-frying or sautéeing, lightly steaming, or microwaving. Cauliflower can be boiled, but that will reduce some of the nutritional benefits and can leave the florets mushy.
