If you had to pick between eating one of these two vegetables: broccoli or cauliflower, which would you pick and how would you cook it?
Cauliflower...either steamed as a side dish with dinner or raw with ranch dip for a snack. Yummy!
broccoli flower!! I would steam it, and then add butter.
If it was raw, I'd go for cauliflower.
I love to toss broccoli florets and pieces into pasta or rice for the last 3 minutes of cooking. It comes out a bright, cheery green and has a firm texture.
Cauliflower. Fried with onions and bit of pepper. More tastier than any other.
Broccoli so that I can cook beef n broccoli! Yummy!
I think it is probably unlikely that you are doing either, they have been endlessly cross bred to get the hard white curd of the cauliflower and the size of the broccoli. The purple, green and the hard white varieties are all broccoli now. I suppose you could say that the purple and green are still 'true' broccoli while the white one is a caul-occoli
Well, both for me.
Broccoli as Lorlie stated, but also with a drizzle of olive oil.
Cauliflower with low fat cream cheese sauce with a little garlic and salt in it.
Has anyone tried either in the oven? I recently found some recipes for cauliflower that is baked and/or broiled.
both! however a couple of years ago I bought some cauliflowers that were green and were called madonna's by the assistant ( they were spikey and pointed like the singers outfits)
I think you are talking about Romanesco, because that's how it would be described. I have heard of it, but have never noticed it in the store before.
they were very nice, they came from a local farm who sold veg at the market ( not a shop but a stall amdist other stalls)
I prefer cauliflower and I like my veg well-cooked - none of this al dente nonsense! I love cauliflower served up in a plain white sauce. Yum!
I've never been that keen on broccoli but it's really good for you - full of iron.
broccoli (flowers only and a bit of stem)...i crave the green 'stuff'
The best broccoli I have had was the stuff that I have grown myself. It's sweeter and more tender.
This is the hardest decision I've had to make in some time. I love them both separately, mixed or in salads etc. But if strapped with a decision, the winner would be cauliflower, and it would be steamed with butter and salt and pepper.
I want creamed spinach info.
My favorite way to have cauliflower is to toss it will olive oil and a little salt. Put it in the oven (high heat) until it starts to carmelize. YUMMY! It is like eating candy (well almost) But is really does have a sweeter taste this way.
Added to lots of cheese, rice, green onions, and a really flavorful sausage in a casserole dish...they both fare about the same. Although broccoli wins with more color...then blanch white cauliflower...in my opinion.
I love them both, and enjoy them steamed with lots of butter. However, I am having a new favorite, a recipe I saw on TV and it's reeeeeealy good. I cut the cauliflower into the small florets and chop up the stem and fry them in olive oil until there's a nice brown carmelization on them. Mmmmmmm so good! We have this once a week now.
This is a little bit like Sophie's Choice isn't it... I love them both and I can't pick one over the other. I always eat them either raw or lightly steamed... no butter, no dressing, no sauce.
I have never liked cauliflower, and remember eating it as a child in cheese, and almost being sick. I do like broccoli and steam this, or add it to a curry.
I prefer cauliflower. Raw in a salad, or roasted. Toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until the florets start to get tinged with golden brown.
Steamed broccoli tossed with fresh garlic and drizzled with olive oil.................oh yes.
Broccoli, parboiled and then topped with cheese sauce and baked in the oven.
Argh, if I can only choose both
But I'll opt for cauliflower.
This is because broccoli reduces iodine absorption when eaten more than 3 times a week.
I'll take a 50/50 mix, please, steamed with a cheese sauce or fresh with ranch dip.
I like broccoli any way .steamed , smothered in cheese, cut up in a salad. Cauliflower on the other hand I can't stomach no matter what way it is made.
Steamed broccoli please with cut ginger. Cauliflower is not good for my stomach.
