Golden Ginger Cauliflower (Anti-Inflammatory)

RECIPES – CLEAR SKIN, IMMUNE-BOOSTING, PALEO, PEGAN, SIDES, VEGAN

This quick and easy side dish provides a powerful anti-inflammatory punch, thanks to generous amounts of turmeric and ginger. Both are well noted and regarded for their powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

This recipe comes from my darling mother-in-law, who always has a plate of this ready when Kush and I go over for dinner. At any Indian restaurant, you’ll find this dish on the menu as Adraki Gobi (literally ginger cauliflower).

You’ll notice just one unusual ingredient, carom or ajwain seeds, which you can find at any Indian grocery store. Although they are not necessary for a tasty dish, they add a lovely flavor and support healthy digestion. Carom seeds are purposely added to prevent any unpleasant side effects (ie gas) that sometimes comes with consuming cruciferous veggies.
