A Tasty Recipe for National Nutrition Month

    Today I'm attaching a recipe from the show Spice Goddess on The Cooking Channel.  It's an easy and tasty dish that can be made quickly.  It's a recipe called Cauliflower with Sweet Potatoes.  The host of the show is Bal Arneson.

    Cauliflower is low in saturated fat, very low in cholesterol and a good source of protein, potassium and dietary fiber.  Sweet Potatoes are also low in cholesterol and saturated fat and also a good source of vitamin A, potassium and dietary fiber.   This is a good recipe for something different to try instead of baking a sweet potato or boiling cauliflower.  And since it's easy to make and great tasting you might try it again sometime. Enjoy!
