Steamed Cauliflower

In your food experience, is cauliflower a forgotten and maligned vegetable? If so, it could be due to the rather pungent, tell-tale odor when it is cooked or steamed. Buying really fresh cauliflower seems to reduce that odor plus the taste seems to almost be buttery!

Frankly, cauliflower is quite a beautiful vegetable when compared to other vegetables. It is creamy white and looks like a cluster of blossoms which reminded me of the very unique jazz singer. Blossom Dearie. Her very distinctive, girlish voice is perfect! I first heard her sing a novelty number, which fit her voice very well. That song is for another blog post because cauliflower and she are more than novelties. Since it is feeling like summer, take a listen to Blossom singing “Once Upon a Summertime.”

Steamed Cauliflower


  • 1 cauliflower head


  1. Cut the head steam off. Cut the head into small florets. Discard the large, woody stems.
  2. Steam in a steamer for about 10 minutes. The asparagus will still be bright green when done. Do not over steam.
