Cauliflower, from the Latin word meaning 'cabbage flower', is a member of the brassica family.

It has been grown for more than 2,000 years. Native to the Mediterranean, it has been part of the European diet for about 500 years. It is now a popular vegetable in New Zealand. Miniature cauliflowers, ideal for a single serve, are sometimes available.

How to prepare

Cut into florets or leave whole. Cauliflower is best cooked for a short time until tender but still slightly crisp. Avoid overcooking as the taste will be inferior and the heads will disintegrate. To lightly cook cauliflower florets for use in salads or to serve with dips, simply place in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, drain and cool under cold running water.

Ways to eat

Add raw or lightly cooked to salads, make into pickles, add to soups, braises and stir fries. Use as crudités, either raw or blanched, served with dip or dipping sauce. Serve steamed or boiled with a white or cheese sauce. Cauliflower can be used like broccoli.

Cooking Methods

Boil, braise, microwave, roast, steam, stir fry.
