Talk about a great way to get your veggies in. Also, cauliflower looks and tastes similar to mashed potatoes. This is a fantastic recipe for using cauliflower and getting some protein in, too, from the cottage cheese. Cauliflower is very beneficial from its Vitamin C & Vitamin K which have anti-inflammatory properties great for disease prevention.
