If you love cooking with cauliflower because of its versatility, you'll certainly enjoy fermenting with it. Although fairly bland on its own, cauliflower easily absorbs other flavors so it's perfect to try out new seasonings with. Unlike other vegetables we ferment, we typically wouldn't recommend fermenting cauliflower with just salt, water and garlic... it's a little too plain. Add some curry and voila: you have a robust and unique flavor. Cauliflower also complements well with jalapeños and chillies if curry isn't your taste.
There are many ways to eat fermented cauliflower: on its own as a snack or side, in a salad (cold quinoa salads especially), or chopped up in a wrap or sandwich. Because it's so beautiful, we like to eat it on its own as a snack or complement to a charcuterie board. Place it in a colorful bowl or leave the Mason jar out for a nice presentation.
