We're often told to avoid white foods - white rice, white bread, white pasta and white sugar, for example - as they are known to be more processed and less healthful than their natural counterparts.

Cauliflower is a stand out exception to this rule however, and like its cruciferous companions broccoli and cabbage, is immensely nutritious.
