Preparation of the cauliflower

There are a few steps to follow if you want to make some tasty cauliflower recipes . First of all, it is a food to be consumed only when it is in a perfect state of ripeness.

  • Choose the vegetables. Choose a good product to have a good result. A fresh cauliflower is white and spotless. The leaves that surround it are green and the base is as white as possible. The twigs appear compact. All of these features ensure that the cauliflower is fresh and good.
  • Once washed, cut the large stems and separate the twigs. If the recipe calls for the cauliflower to be cooked already, we suggest steaming it for six minutes. Moreover, a minimum cooking time ensures the conservation of all nutrients.
