About

The stems and trunk are firm and tender and the florets have a dense yet soft and crumbly texture. Its flavor is mild with subtle cruciferous and nutty sweet nuances, a taste which is amplified when roasted. The entire cauliflower, its leaves, trunk, stems and florets are all edible.

Cauliflower is high in both fiber and vitamin C, with a half cup of florets providing nearly half of ones daily requirement for vitamin C. It also contains a fair amount of vitamin A, folate, calcium and potassium as well as selenium, which works with Vitamin C to boost the immune system. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower are touted for their high levels of cancer-fighting phytochemicals know as glucosinolates.
