Fioretto Cau­li­flower

Cooking Light - - What’s Fresh Now Thanksgiving, Simplified -

+ Know

Fioretto is a non-gmo bras­sica plant that is a hy­brid of broc­coli and cau­li­flower. Its tiny flo­rets sit atop thin, pale green stems.

+ Taste

Much more del­i­cate than stan­dard cau­li­flower, the fla­vor is mildly grassy and faintly sweet. The raw flo­rets are crisp-ten­der and make great ve­hi­cles for creamy dips.

+ Cook

Sauté or stir-fry over high heat for a minute or two to add a touch of golden carameliza­tion. Sea­son sim­ply with salt and pep­per or a lit­tle curry pow­der. Or shake up your tra­di­tional broc­coli casse­role and use this in­stead.

+ Buy

Fioretto is sold at some spe­cialty gro­cers and on­line at Melissa’s. ($20/3 [10-oz.] pack­ages, melis­sas.com)
