Healthy Cauliflower Stew (Vegetarian or Shrimp Option)

This delicious stew is a powerhouse of great ingredients that will support your immune system, help your bones and teeth, protect against cancer and increase your life span.



According to Dr. Mercola "
Cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has also been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. Some researchers believe eliminating cancer stem cells may be key to controlling cancer.

For instance, research has shown that combining cauliflower with curcumin (the active compound in the spice turmeric) may help prevent and treat prostate cancer



Eating cauliflower is like winning the antioxidant and phytonutrient lottery. It's packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, kaempferol, quercetin, rutin, cinnamic acid, and much more. "

My recipe combines both cauliflower and tumeric for a very tasty dinner or a side dish.

Another powerhouse ingredient is Bone Broth. "We have science that supports the use of cartilage, gelatin, and other components found in homemade bone broth to prevent and sometimes even reverse osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, digestive distress, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer,” Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, a nutrition scientist, certified clinical nutritionist, and co-author of Nourishing Broths. 

This stew is perfect addition to any healthy gluten free life style. I hope you make it and enjoy it's healing benefits as much as I do!

Instructions:


 

In a large pot, heat coconut oil over a medium-high flame. Add in the onion and garlic and cook for a minute or so, just to release the aroma and flavor the oil. Add in the tumeric, cinnamon and fennel seed and stir to release the aroma of the spices, about 15 seconds.

Turn the heat down to a simmer and add in the bone broth and potatoes. Cook for 15 min and add in cauliflower. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer the stew over medium heat until it thickens slightly, about 20 to 30 minutes. Stir in the parsley and cooked shrimp (optional) before serving.
