chutney. Use any vegetable you like, here I used Cauliflower.

is low in fat, low in carbs but high in dietary fiber, folate, water,
and vitamin C, possessing a high nutritional density. Cauliflower
contains several phytochemicals, common in the cabbage family that
may be beneficial to human health.
§  Sulforaphane, a compound released when cauliflower is chopped or chewed,
may protect against cancer.

an estrogen antagonist,
slowing the growth of cancer cells. (from Wikipedia)
