Cauliflower and Meatballs Ragout is for one of those nights when you crave healthy comfort food. This casual, naturally gluten-free meal is made simply under 45 minutes. The meatballs are made with grated zucchini and flavoured with a hint of cinnamon and cumin. Because the meatballs are made with grated zucchini, they are moist and light. They are cooked in a rich sauce with carrots, turnip, and healthy cauliflower. The meatballs, combined with earthy vegetables, add amazing flavour and nutrients to this most delicious naturally gluten-free meal. 

 Cauliflower, a high fiber cruciferous vegetable, is naturally high in B vitamins and antioxidants.
