Romanesco Cauliflower with Turmeric Recipe

  • Finely chop your cauliflower, red onion, and white onion.
  • Steam your cauliflower lighting in a steamer basket until it reaches the desired softness.
  • Put cauliflower and onion into a bowl and add butter, Ginger Terrain and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Add ginger and turmeric and mix really well until the orange color of the turmeric is homogenous throughout the dish

Should Cauliflower Be Cooked or Eaten Raw?

Dr. David Jockers not only provided the basic structure for this yummy recipe, but he also shares some incredible health info about cauliflower:

  • If you have thyroid problems it is best to consume the cauliflower slightly steamed to remove any unwanted goitrogens.
  • If you have major leaky gut syndrome than it is also best to lightly steam the cauliflower as it is easier on the digestive system.
  • If you have cancer it is best to consume the cauliflower raw to maximize enzyme content as well as powerful anti-carcinogens in the form of sulfuraphane, phenyl isothiocyanates and indole-3 carbonyl.  Raw cauliflower contains signicantly more of these nutrients than steamed cauliflower.
