Fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin C, folic acid, beta-carotene etc. and they can help to keep cancer and other ailments away.

The benefits are immense! Try this tasty cauliflower with buttered crumbs to tempt you! Who can resist this vegetable?

One cauliflower. Salt and pepper. 75 g. butter 50 g. dry bread crumbs. Two tablespoons finely chopped parsley. One tablespoon lemon juice.

It takes only 15 minutes.


Cut the outer leaves and the tough base from the cauliflower, divide it into small florets and wash these well. Put them into a pan of boiling lightly salted water, bring it to the boil and simmer, covered for seven minutes, until just tender. Drain thoroughly.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan, add the cauliflower florets and sauté over fairly high heat until golden brown. Lift the cauliflower into a serving dish and keep it warm.

Stir the breadcrumbs and parsley into the remaining butter in the pan. Fry until they are crisp and brown and all the butter has been absorbed. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the buttered crumbs over the cauliflower florets and serve with any kind of main dish.
