Cajun Cauliflower with Cilantro Avocado Sauce

Let’s take a moment to appreciate Cauliflower. As the cousin of broccoli, cauliflower has a similar nutritional benefit. I’m also a fan of Cauliflower for its versatility. It works well as a substitute for some of my favorite carb-charged comfort foods – think mashed potatoes and pizza crust. Yum! I’m currently crazy about this recipe for Cajun Cauliflower with Cilantro Avocado sauce. Happy cooking and enjoy!
