Weekend Market Picks 2/2-3/2013 + Cauliflower


Simple, hot, gentle and tasty. Steamed cauliflower with melted butter was one of my mom’s favorite winter vegetables. I don’t make it very often myself, but when I do, it brings back memories of winter sledding parties when we were little kids. Just a little nostalgia on a freezing winter weekend.

Cut your cauliflower into bite sized pieces and place in a steamer till just tender (about 5 minutes). Melt two tablespoons of butter over the cauliflower, with a dash of sea salt. A whole cauliflower will serve 4-6 people. You can cook a portion of one head and store the rest in the refrigerator for several days.

These plump beauties can be spotted at Greenmarkets throughout the city.
