Healthy, because

Even smarter

Unlike other types of cabbage, cauliflower is well tolerated by most people and is easily digestible. The secondary plant substance sulforaphane is said to be able to prevent cancer and even make chemotherapy more effective. The almond slivers turn the dish into brain food, as their high content of magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin E and niacin has a positive effect on our nerve cells.

The spicy cauliflower is a great side dish to steamed fish. Serve with a cream of yogurt, salt and pepper. If you want it to remain vegetarian, then lukewarm rice cakes with avocado dip are suitable. You can replace the almonds with other nuts like hazelnuts or pine nuts.
