Treat yourself to turmeric-spiced cauliflower. With its vibrant yellow color and superb nutritional value, turmeric lets you get creative with cauliflower. A prized aromatic spice in African, East Indian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine, turmeric powers both the flavor and color in this cancer-protective cauliflower dish.

Ingredients, Makes 4 servings

1/3 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
4 cups cauliflower florets
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. powdered turmeric
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro


Pour broth in large skillet over medium-high heat. When broth begins to steam add cauliflower, garlic and turmeric. Stir to combine and cover. Cook cauliflower 4-5 minutes for al dente or 5-6 minutes for more tender.

Remove skillet from heat and transfer cauliflower mixture into medium bowl. Add oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Gently toss to combine well. Sprinkle on cilantro and gently toss. Serve warm or at room temperature.
