Healthy Attributes

Cauliflower is unique because has the ability to morph into many different forms. When it's mashed, pureed, roasted or boiled – the texture and flavor completely change.

White is the most widely available variety, but you may also be able to find green, purple and orange versions at your local famers' market.
