Cauliflower is commonly praised by doctors for its many healthy attributes, such as its anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventing properties. Cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable, is rich in sulforaphane, which exhibits “anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects relevant to cancer prevention” in clinical studies. However, cauliflower seldom finds its way to our dinner tables for its taste alone. Not that this should stop any health-conscious cook, because this recipe is a winner also for its spicy deliciousness. Use cannabis-infused olive oil, and you have a spectacularly healthy dip, ideal for wowing guests at parties! Serve with crudités, olives, home-made sweet potato crisps, chicken strips, or even as a delicious sauce over dishes such as roasted vegetables etc.
