Cooking Cauliflower for the pressure cooker!

Cauliflower after cooking in pressure cooker
I am making a recipe tonight that called for a bag of frozen cauliflower for a cream sauce. I could not find any at my store, so I decided to buy a head of cauliflower and boil it myself. Being lazy today, I came up with a QUICK way to cook cauliflower florets in the pressure cooker without having to cut each one off the head. SO easy!!!

1 head of cauliflower, washed well
Place in the pressure cooker stem-side down.
Add one cup of water.
Place cover on pressure cooker and cook on pressure for 10 minutes with QUICK release.
With two large spoons, lift the head of cauliflower out of the pressure cooker and place in another pot or bowl, flipping it over (so the stem is up). You should be able to scoop the stem out easily with the spoons, leaving all of the florets in tact.

Beautifully cooked florets!


  1. This is a brilliant idea, I will definitely be doing this in the future. I get so set in my ways I sometimes forget to think outside the box. :)

  2. Would this method work for mashed cauliflower?
