Best to Buy
Choose a firm, heavy cauliflower head with compact, cream-colored florets and no sign of the brown specks that form as cauliflower ages.
Prep & Store
Wash well just before using. Cut into florets by pulling away the leaves and cutting around the core on the underside. Separate the florets by cutting them apart from the inside. Quick tip: Adding a tablespoon of lemon juice or a cup of milk to the cooking water prevents discoloration.
Quick & Easy Recipe
Cut cauliflower into large florets, toss with olive oil and fresh thyme, and roast or steam. Serve with a light cream or cheese sauce.
