Today I am here to share with you a simple but tasty vegan recipe for cauliflower. Winter is my favorite season as I belong to India. It's a hot region. I enjoyed cooking much in winter because; in winter I can get so many different kinds of vegetables. Cauliflower contains so many nutrients values like Fiber, Choline, Sulforaphane. Cauliflower is also a good source of Antioxidants. On the other hand, Green peas are an excellent source of protein; it also helps to Control Blood Sugar. Green peas have Antioxidants too. Regular eating of green peas may reduce the risk of cancer. Green peas contain magnesium, potassium, and calcium that helps to prevent high blood pressure.
