Cauliflower Lemon Muffins

Fresh cauliflower, yup, that's this weeks featured vegetable! Unusual? Maybe, but fresh cauli doesn't have a naturally strong flavour, making it a great addition to baked goods & your favourite smoothie! I like to prep a couple cauli heads at a time & portion into individual freezer bags as a quick smoothie, baking, or stir fry addition! To help the vegetable maintain its fresh white colour, cook them for the shortest possible time (until just tender) and sprinkle lemon juice over. The lemon juice helps cauli retain its bright white color and provides a flavor boost to both vegetables. Which is exactly what inspired this zesty recipe!
