This is the perfect side dish, with no fat, hardly any calories, and instead, substances from chili and ginger that boost the metabolism. In addition, cauliflower supports the immune system with plenty of vitamin C and strengthens the work of heart, nerves, and muscles with potassium.
In order to achieve the optimum flavour, the cauliflower needs at least 3 weeks to soak through. It goes very well with roast meat, grilled meat, fish, cold roasts, or sushi.
