Cauliflower, Chickpea and Pomegranate Tagine Recipe
Brassica vegetables such as cauliflower are nutrient-rich powerhouses that are loaded with disease-fighting vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Most of brassicas’ beneficial effects are linked to their unique phytochemicals which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and lipid- and blood-sugar-lowering effects. This makes cauliflower an excellent food choice for helping to prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
