Cauliflower is pleasingly versatile – boil it, roast it, steam it, stir-fry it, or eat it raw in one of these seasonal cauliflower recipes.
Cauliflower can be found at any time of the year and comes in a variety of different colours and textures too. For sceptics, the cauliflowers in this picture have not been dyed; they're known, imaginatively, as 'purple', 'yellow', 'orange' and 'green' cauliflowers:
Purple: the colour is caused by anthocyanins, the same antioxidant found in red wine. If you overcook it, it turns green, so set the colour by dousing it in lemon juice.
Yellow: milder than the white variety, but looks striking regardless.
Orange: sweeter than other types, and with more vitamins, including beta-carotene. Apparently, it tastes a bit like corn on the cob (if you can verify this, please leave a comment).
Green: has the texture of broccoli, hence its other name of 'broccoflower'.
