Less Smell When Cooking Cauliflower?

I would like to know if there is anything you can add to cauliflower while preparing it to take away that gaseous smell. I love cauliflower, but hate the smell.

How about cooking it oudoors?
Or, keeping the lid securely on the pot and also while the water cools after the cauli has been removed.

Read if you add a little (tbsp or so?) to the pot of water it will keep the odor out of your kitchen. Doesn't put the vinegar taste into the veggie.

All I do is just put some vinegar in a small bowl with lemon juice this keeps down all odor that might occur while cooking.

You might try adding a little vinegar to it. I know this works for cabbage, but I am not sure about cauliflower

Simply heat (NOT boil) some plain white vinegar on the stove while you're cooking it (in a separate pan) and the vinegar gets rid of the smell. The "vinegary" smell dissipates quickly, too.

Try a teaspoonful of vanilla in the cooking water. It's amazing what vanilla will do for unpleasant smells--such as paint, etc.!

My mother taught me to put a slice of white bread in the water with the cauliflower to take away the smell. Sounds odd but seems to work.

Seriously - Any ideas for broccoli? Everyone in my house, except me loves the stuff. To me the only thing worse than eating it (I know, I am morally deficient) is the odor when it is cooking, it literally ruins my appetite for hours.

Will the vinegar or vanilla ideas work for brocccoli as well?

I hope the vinegar trick works for the odor!
I'd suggest cider vinegar, organic.
I do know that vinegar added to many long-cooked dishes helps draw out the calcium and other nutrients into the broth...maybe it will do the same for smelly cauliflower, broccoli and collard greens?

Best way to do away with the smell of cooking cauliflour is simply to add a bay leaf while cooking and only take it out when you are ready to serve. Enjoy!

The best thing to do to stop Cauliflower smell is to not cook at it.

Here is a definition of Cauliflower that I find most descriptive:

A vegetable warmed by passing gas on it.
