Caulilini is a new vegetable that is both pretty and delicious. It is a tender variety of cauliflower. It looks like broccolini but stems from the cauliflower. It cooks rather quickly and needs little dressing to serve it.

Caulilini is also known as "sweet sprouting cauliflower."

                                                      Raw prepped Caulilini
