The Instacart guide to cauliflower products


About cauliflower

The word "cauliflower" stems from Latin and means "flowers of cabbage." This cruciferous vegetable does resemble cabbage when it's growing until its large leaves begin to open. That's when you notice the globe-shaped head that is about 6-8in in diameter. The head has florets attached to its stem.

Cauliflower is naturally high in B-vitamins and fiber, and one cup of it has 75% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. This vegetable also boasts antioxidants that can protect against cancer. It's in the same family as broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. Cauliflower has a mild taste, and when it's cooked, the flavor becomes nuttier and caramelized.

When preparing cauliflower, you can either eat it raw or cooked. The entire head can be eaten as well, including the leaf, stalk, and florets. If you're eating the cauliflower raw, you can eat it on its own, with a dip, or add it to salads. Cooking the cauliflower opens up a wide array of options, as you can serve it as a side dish, topped with a sauce, or part of other dishes. You can also interchange cauliflower for broccoli in most dishes.

FAQs About Cauliflower

Yes, you can freeze cauliflower. You don't want to just throw it in the freezer, though, as you will end up with soggy and flavorless cauliflower when you thaw it.

Thoroughly clean the head, and cut off the florets. Aim to have them no more than 1.5in thick. Place the florets into a pot of boiling water, and let them cook for 5 minutes. Drain them in a colander, and immediately place them into a bowl of ice water. This stops the cooking process. Leave them in there for 3 minutes.

To prevent the florets from sticking together, place a single layer of florets on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Transfer the cauliflower into freezer bags or containers. Frozen cauliflower will last up to one year.

Yes, cauliflower is an ideal vegetable to consume if you're on a Keto-friendly diet. It's one of the lowest-carb vegetables, and its texture is similar to potatoes. You use cauliflower instead of other carb-heavy dishes such as mashed potatoes, rice, and pizza crust.
