Are you serving potatoes for a Thanksgiving side dish? Try upgrading your classic potato dishes with cauliflower.

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that's rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that are being studied for their role in lowering inflammation and reducing the risk of developing cancer. Plus, it pairs perfectly with potatoes.

When you swap half the spuds for cauliflower in classic potato dishes, you lower the amount of calories and carbs, while boosting vitamins and minerals. The result is comfort food that you can feel better about.

Each week one of the 100+ tasty video recipes from the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program is featured on the Mayo Clinic News Network, just in time for you to try at the weekend. You can also have the recipes delivered via the Mayo Clinic App.
