Can you eat cauliflower leaves?

    I used to think broccoli leaves were not good to eat, and then I saw a vendor at the farmer's market selling them. She said they were actually some of the better type of greens to eat. I've tried them steamed, and they're okay I guess. I've also tried steaming kohlrabi leaves. Now I'm wondering can you eat steamed cauliflower leaves?

    Yes, you can. I don't care for them much, but they are edible and not poisonous.

    Just the tender leafy parts. The thick stems those leaves have are way too tough to eat.

    You can add the leaves to stir fry or soup, or even salad, I suppose.

    Thanks for the feedback. I have some in my garden. I didn't want them to go to waste if I could eat them (especially if they might be good for me). Maybe I'll give them a try then...
