Texas Grow! Eat! Go! video for cleaning and preparing raw cauliflower. Transcription: Vegetables taste good and are easy to prepare. Eating lots of colorful vegetables can improve your health and stop certain diseases. Today we will show you how to prepare cauliflower as a snack. Cauliflower is a great veggie for a quick snack because it is tasty, packed with nutrients, and low in calories. Cauliflower is a great source of Folate, Vitamin C, and dietary fiber. The best cauliflower has bright green leaves and compact, or tight, curds because they have the freshest taste and have the most nutrients. Not all cauliflower is white. It also can be purple and orange, making your plate very colorful. Before you begin, make sure your kitchen countertops, workspace and utensils are clean. Before washing the cauliflower, wash your own hands to prevent germs. Then, rinse the cauliflower under running water in the sink. Most vegetables can be cleaned by holding them under running water and rubbing them gently with your hands. If you are washing firm or hard vegetables, like cauliflower, use a vegetable brush. Choose and wash only the amount of cauliflower that your family can eat for the next two days. To start, have an adult cut off the thick stem using a knife. Next, cut off the leaves. They are not very good to eat. Children can easily pull apart the individual cauliflower florets. The cauliflower is now ready to be eaten. You can eat it by itself, dip it in your favorite dressing, or add it to a salad. Another way to enjoy this great vegetable is to cook it on the stove top and add your favorite spices and herbs. Once you have finished eating this tasty and healthy snack, you can store what is left of the washed and cut-up cauliflower in the refrigerator in a plastic container or plastic bag. The produce should be used in one or two days.
