Until yesterday, I had never heard of purple cauliflower! Needless to say I was also surprised to learn that there are orange and green varieties of cauliflower as well. Hmmm. Where have I been!? Apparently kept in the dark with the mushrooms!! 😉
These colorful varieties of cauliflower can be found in some local supermarkets. The purple variety was introduced to us via Farm Fresh To You (http://www.farmfreshtoyou.com/index.php) a service that delivers organic, farm fresh produce to your door step.
We roasted the cauliflower with broccoli using olive oil, Kosher salt and pepper. It was deeee-licious! Purple cauliflower, although prettier, doesn’t taste any different than the good ole’ white variety. Pick up some today and make your next veggie platter or side-dish pop with color!
