How to master cauliflower
I am of the belief that cauliflower is having a moment, and it's about time. This versatile and inexpensive vegetable is made of densely packed florets that form the head — also called the curd. An outer layer of leaves lends protection from the sun during the growing period. And while the most common cauliflower hue is white, you can also find beautiful orange and purple varieties. Though it's in the same family as broccoli, cauliflower possesses a noticeably more compact head. I love cooking with it and do so often.
In addition to being delicious in various preparations, cauliflower is chock full of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and folate as well as potassium and magnesium. The best part? Whether you blend it into a warming soup, roast it for lunch, or stir-fry it in a wok, this unique vegetable comes out like a shining star. With its naturally nutty, sweet, and creamy flavor, it'll certainly help you get excited about eating your veggies.
