Cauliflower Mushroom

Cauliflower mushrooms are unique, large, and pale yellowish mushrooms with a shape reminiscent of cauliflower florets. They have a delicate, nutty flavor and a firm, meaty texture. Cauliflower mushrooms are excellent for absorbing flavors from the ingredients they are cooked with.
