Cauliflowers come aren't just white, they are also orange, green, and purple! Delicious raw, roasted, or sauted!
How to Select
Look for cauliflowers with pure white heads with no discoloration, and crisp green leaves. The color of the base is a good indication of how recently it's been picked - the whiter, the fresher.
How to Store
In perforated bag in a cool dark place, or the fridge. It will keep for several days.
How to Prepare
Cut off the surrounding leaves (if they're fresh, they can be cooked, too). For large cauliflowers, cut off individual florets from the central stem and cut again if necessary. You should end up with florets of a comparable size, so that they all cook at the same pace. Then wash. Smaller, baby cauliflowers can be cooked whole.
