Cauliflower Cauliflower

This creamy white vegetable has a strong flavor, I think it actually tastes best when mashed with a little bit of butter or mixed with cooked carrots. It is available fresh almost year round and frozen without added salt in the freezer. It is a good source of vitamin C. Look for cauliflower heads that are compact and creamy-white, with no black spots, if the outer leaves are attached they should be a fresh green color. Green or purple varieties taste and cook like white cauliflower.

Cooking Instructions

To prepare: Cut the cauliflower head into small flowers, similar in size for even cooking. Discard the center core as it is usually tough.
To steam: place cauliflower in a steaming basket in an even layer over a pot filled with at least 1 inch of boiling water. Cover and steam for 5-6 minutes or until the pieces are tender but not mushy.
Serve hot with butter or a small grating of cheese.
Tip: Use mashed cauliflower as a delicious low calorie substitute for mashed potato replacing some or all of the potato with cauliflower. Simply mash cooked cauliflower as you would mashed potatoes with a little butter, milk, salt and pepper.
