Cauliflower is the often-neglected cousin of broccoli. I find it easier to digest and like the firm texture better than broccoli. It grows best in cool weather - so we grow it as a fall crop.
Cauliflower stores great wrapped in plastic in your refrigerator. Don't remove the green wrapper leaves before storage as they help lengthen storage. It will be usable for a couple of weeks.
- Cut into florets for most recipes. Don't over cook. Be careful that it doesn't get mushy, but stays firm and has a slight crunch.
- Try replacing cauliflower for broccoli in a favorite recipe.
- Tastes great raw.
- Steam lightly (5-10 minutes) and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little lemon juice.
- Add to soups, stews and stir-fries.
