This week put a cauli in your trolley!
My pick this week is the versatile cauliflower. It’s the perfect storm for cauliflowers this week with excellent volumes coming from the three major growing areas. Werribee in Victoria, Cowra in NSW and Gatton in Queensland. The quality out of each area is fantastic. High in both vitamin A and C, caulies can be enjoyed a number of ways; baked in the oven with a covering of your favourite cheese and cream, roasted, in curries, soups, stir-fries or even pickled. What has recently become popular is cauliflower rice. This is a great way to get the kids eating what would commonly have been a vegie at the bottom of their list. So whichever way you prefer this snow white gem be sure to grab one (or two) this week!
HOW TO PICK
Choose cauliflowers with tight, creamy white florets. Avoid those with a noticeable yellow tinge or brown spots.
HOW TO STORE
Store unwashed in a produce bag in the crisper of your fridge for 3-4 days.
