🥦Broccoli and 🥗Cauliflower are so similar in how they look and how they grow. Heck, they’re even often served together. So, it’s easy to see why people may think of cauliflower as a “white broccoli.” They are both cruciferous vegetables and family members from the Brassica oleracea plant species. Both vegetables also originated from Europe’s Mediterranean region.
There’s no doubt that both veggies are healthy and packed full of nutrition. However, with all that similarity, it begs the question: what veggie is better for your health?😕
They contain some of the same nutritional structures, many vitamins and high fiber. however, broccoli contains more than cauliflower and also contains vitamin A, which cauliflower does not have. But, cauliflower has lower calories than broccoli.
As for looks, both veggies have tightly bunched florets growing from a central stem. If you look closely, you’ll see that broccoli’s florets are spread out, while cauliflower’s are very tightly bunched. When it comes to taste, both absorb flavors from other foods well so they’re just about interchangeable in recipes. On their own, broccoli has a stronger, greener flavor, while cauliflower is more delicate.
If you can’t decide between broccoli or cauliflower, try broccoli 🙌🏻. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should skip the cauliflower rice or even choose broccoli over cauliflower at every single meal. Cauliflower is still an incredibly healthy food rich in plenty of vitamins and minerals. But maybe it does mean I can stop hiding cauliflower in my family’s meals and serve them the broccoli that they already love.
