Food History

White cauliflower is part of the Brassicaceae family.
In order to choose a fresh one, pay attention to the compactness of the pulp, which must be very firm and must not have strange spots. Also, the leaves that surround it should be bright green.
Rich in nutrients and vitamins, cauliflower, as all the vegetables of the same family, is famous for its rather unpleasant odor due to the presence of sulfur compounds.
Apart from this minor inconvenience, cauliflower is  among the most tasty and healthy vegetables. It is extremely versatile and can be eaten either cooked - in soups, with pasta or as a side dish - it raw with vinaigrette.
