Here are a few tips for prepping cauliflower for cooking:

  • Don’t toss the stalk and leaves of the cauliflower head! The leaf, stalk, and florets can be eaten raw or cooked. So the leaves are edible and quite delicious; you may want to include them in your cooking, especially for adding to soup stocks. Peel and cut the stalks so they’re about the same size as the florets you’re using to ensure even cooking.
  • To cut a head of cauliflower into florets, quarter the cauliflower head through the stem end and cut the small piece of core from each quarter. Then cut the cored cauliflower into bite-sized florets.
  • Rinse the cut up pieces of cauliflower in a colander to remove any residual dirt. Use a paper towel or a clean kitchen towel to pat them dry before cooking.
  • Cauliflower is available in grocery stores all year-round. Peak seasons are generally in the spring and fall, depending on the climate in your region.
  • Cauliflower should be left unwashed when storing. Store in the refrigerator, with the stem side down, in a loosely closed plastic bag. This will prevent any excess moisture, which causes the cauliflower to spoil faster.
