It was almost a week ago that I made this Cauliflower Sabzi and it is long gone, but looking at these pictures as I got ready to post them now got my mouth watering!
The amazing thing about this sabzi is, it is really simple to make-- in fact, I made it with a bag of frozen cauliflower florets and a few old spices. It took a minimum of effort, delivered a power-packed flavor punch and tons of nutrition because -- like its cruiciferous siblings broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collards and kale-- cauliflower is a super-veggie that can help you ward off cancer. Now those are my kind of eats.
