This vegan-friendly dish is a nutrition powerhouse.
If you’re vegetarian or vegan or trying to eat more plants but want the heft of something to slice into, try making cauliflower steaks. Cauliflower is a nutritional powerhouse! It’s a member of the cruciferous or brassica group of vegetables, like kale and broccoli. Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates, meaning it won’t cause a rapid increase in your blood sugar, and it’s a great addition to a healthy diet. It’s also a good source of vitamin C and K, B vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants.
For color and flavor, this recipe includes fragrant kale-walnut pesto. Adding kale to the basil traditionally found in pesto adds fiber and many nutrients, and the walnuts add healthy fats that lend a creaminess, so you won’t miss the cheese.
Note: Includes 2 tablespoons of kale-walnut pesto.
