How to Make Garlicky Cauliflower - Fermented

Have you ever heard of this delicious ferment called “Garlicky cauliflower?” – I have to confess, I am not a regular cauliflower lover. But when this vegetable is fermented, the flavor is so unique and appetizing, that it has become one of my favorite ferments for any occasion. Besides being delicious, it has a lot of health benefits! 

If you’ve been following my blog or social media, you probably realized by now that I love fermented foods, especially those you can make at home and that have the power to improve your overall health, and this fermented garlicky cauliflower is one of many recipes I love sharing with you. You should know that this recipe doesn’t only taste good, it also comes with many health benefits, like being high in fiber and serves as a great low carb alternative. 

Cauliflower alone has many nutritional benefits, apart from its flavor and texture, cauliflower provides you with important health-giving vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. The phytochemicals are chemicals derived from plants that have preventive properties. On the other hand, garlic minimizes bone loss by increasing estrogen in women and it is very easy to include in every dish you’re planning to cook as we’re going to see in this garlicky cauliflower recipe. 

And if that’s not enough, the fermentation process provides live probiotics and can increase the absorption of the nutrients. It’s so easy and healthy to make fermented food! Check my article about why you should eat fermented food.

The Process
