GRAM FLOUR

Oth­er­wise known as be­san, gram flour – made from chick­peas – is lower in calo­ries than wheat flour but more nu­tri­tion­ally dense: it’s high in fi­bre, iron, potas­sium, man­ganese and vi­ta­min B6.

CAU­LI­FLOWER

Fre­quently over­shad­owed by broc­coli, the

other cru­cif­er­ous veg that comes in flo­rets is high in be­tac­arotene, quercetin and vi­ta­min C and, ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in Molec­u­lar Nu­tri­tion And Food Re­search, is linked to a re­duced risk of sev­eral can­cers.

RAPE­SEED OIL

Rape­seed has half as much sat­u­rated fat as your ex­tra vir­gin olive oil –al­though the jury’s still out on whether that’s im­por­tant – but it’s also worth cook­ing with be­cause of its omega 3 con­tent and high smoke point, which keeps it stable for cook­ing.
