Winter is Cauliflower season...
Cauliflowers are a great winter vegetable and after a recent run of short supply bumper crops are coming through!
Lou Christo supplies us with much of our cauliflower stock. The fertile soil of his Werribee South farm coupled with his many years of growing experience means he grows some of the cleanest and biggest heads of cauliflowers we’ve seen.
Cauliflower is both versatile in cooking as well as packed full of nutrients to aid good health. Some of the health benefits include relief from indigestion, strengthening of the immune system, reducing the risk of stroke, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. It also aids in the maintenance of cellular, bone and brain health. With high levels of Vitamin C and low fat content, Cauliflower is a great Winter comfort food.
Belonging to the Brassicaceae family, which also includes broccoli, kale, and cabbage.
