cauliflower linguine

One of England’s favourite vegetables is the humble cauliflower. Related to broccoli, supermarket cauliflowers are often tiny (in plastic wrap) and all cauliflowers often have a lot go to waste, yet the stalks are edible (nice sliced, then roasted in oil and sea salt).

Creamy Cauliflower Soup (ElaVegan) roasts the cauliflower then combines with white beans, garlic and optional cashews for a comforting winter soup. You can use fresh or thawed frozen cauliflower florets for this recipe.

If used, choose vegan butters without palm oilBefore cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods like onion, garlic,  leeks, spices and nutmeg are unsafe). 

Probably first cultivated in Cyprus, store cauliflowers loose in the fridge, as they need air to circulate. Recently ‘the weather’ caused customers to complain that some supermarkets were ‘the size of an egg’, and another supermarket rejected 1200 due to being ‘too ugly to sell’. Yet farm shops use better growing practices, so this would never happen.

If you don’t like the ‘sulphur smell’ when cooking cauliflower, just add a few celery seeds (if not allergic) or a few drops of white cooking vinegar. You can even use cauliflower (like rice) as a neutral ‘base’ for puddings and ice-cream cakes, due to its neutral flavour.
