Dill Cauliflower with Mustard

No mundane steamed veggies here...

This dill cauliflower with mustard dish uses Dijon mustard and dill to enhance the flavor of the cauliflower beautifully. If you love cauliflower you'll love this recipe!  Cauliflower has a lot of potassium. In fact, one head of cauliflower has about 1758 mg of potassium or about 50% of your daily requirement.  Of course, it's doubtful you are going to eat a whole head of cauliflower! But it is good and good for you too! It also contains about 12 g of dietary fiber, 11 g of pro- tein and Vitamins K, C and B as well as calcium, iron, magnesium and a whole lot more!

It's pretty versatile too. You can roast it, steam it, mash it like mashed potatoes or eat it raw. This dill cauliflower recipe is yet another way to dress it up and make it a real "keeper" for your
recipe list!

So if someone asks what's on the menu tonight why not tell them
