Cauliflower: it's the vegetable that would make most of us run away with terror as kids.

But now, it's become something of a minor celebrity in the foodie world and we simply can't get enough of it.

The most wonderful thing about cauliflower - aside from its unique taste - is that it's incredibly versatile. These days you can make pretty much anything from it whether that's rice, pizza bases or even a mashed potato substitute.

And if that isn't enough to make you bulk buy the beige stuff, cauliflower contains vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, or plant nutrients, that can help neutralise damaging toxins in the body.

According to LiveStrong, it is rich in vitamin C which promotes skin and brain health, and contains potassium which is an essential dietary mineral.
