Cauliflower

Vegetable side dishes, soups, stir-fries and raw with dips or salads.

Selection

Choose a clean white head with firm tight clusters heavy for their size. The leaves should be fresh and green.

Storage

In an airtight bag in refrigerator crisper.

Cooking

Boil or steam florets with a chunk of lemon for 4-5 minutes until tender. The lemon helps alleviate the smell and keeps the cauliflower white. Microwave florets in a covered dish with 2 tablespoons water on high (100%) for 5-6 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes to ensure even cooking.

Serving suggestion

Serve cooked cauliflower with cheesy sauce or topped with a little low-fat natural yoghurt and sprinkled with ground cumin, paprika and crushed coriander seeds or chopped fresh coriander.
