Need some guidance on how to steam cauliflower?

Generally, I steam cauliflower by placing the cut florets into a steamer basket or insert over about an inch of boiling water with a generous pinch of salt; ensuring that insert is above the water. It takes about 10-15 minutes to steam, covered. For the above recipe, I’d cook it a little less, say 8-10 minutes. So that it doesn’t become overcooked and soggy.

Note, I don’t make any money out of the above links. I simply provide them so you can see what I’m talking about!
