Cauliflower is super popular right now! Not only is it filled with vitamins and minerals but its very versatile. Due to the popularity of low-carb diets many people are finding inventive ways to use this popular vegetable. Anything from cauliflower pizza crust to cauliflower steak. Here is another way to prepare cauliflower which happens to be one of my favorites. I love this as an alternative to mashed potatoes. Perfect for your holiday meals and for those following a lower carbohydrate diet.
