Cauliflower, Single Piece

Category: basic, fresh vegetables, local, White

  • Cauliflower is a vegetable that's as meaty as a potato but has its own very mild, nutty, cabbage-like flavor. It has a delightfully fresh flavor and a satisfying crunch. A close relative of broccoli, cauliflower is a bit sweeter and even harder. We love this versatile vegetable because it absorbs the full flavor of spices.

  • Cauliflower tossed with fennel and white beans for a tangy, delicious winter salad. In a crunchy salad or slaw, like its green cousin the cabbage, cauliflower makes a fabulous salad. Roasted until crispy. Whether it's plain or with toasty spice, roasted cauliflower is one of the best ways to enjoy this vegetable.

  • When you get it home, unwrap it immediately and transfer it to a loosely sealed plastic bag, with a paper towel tucked in to absorb any excess moisture. Whole heads of cauliflower can be kept in a loosely sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for 4 to 7 days. Precut florets should be stored for no more than 4 days.
