Looking for a delicious and nutritious paleo vegetable dish? This cool Curry Cauliflower bowl recipe may be served as a side dish or the main course. I love it because it includes one of my favorite vegetables – cauliflower!

Cauliflower is one of those perfect foods to try to include in your diet as much as possible. Its packed with vitamins C, K, B6, folate, potassium and manganese, it is an excellent source of fiber, and it contains protein, niacin, magnesium and phosphorus.

Cauliflower is also a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, a group of vegetables that contain glucosinolates, or sulfur containing compounds that support detoxification (read more about the benefits of cruciferous vegetables here).

This particular cauliflower dish is made especially tasty with a cilantro lime dressing. Crunchy, tangy, and sure to satisfy – enjoy!
