Just thought I would post a picture of some cauliflower we grew this year!


The uncooked is at the back. I was so afraid all the color would drain away like it does with purple podded green beans. But it was still incredible after cooking! Tasted great too!

Absolutely stunning. Think of what eyecatching things you can do on a plate with those!

@ Marissa,
 
Good afternoon. These violet and perriwinkle cauliflowers are gorgeous !  Thanks for sharing your foto.
 
Violet, violet blue and magenta red violet lettuces are very common throughout Italia ... and the Mediterranean ...
 
Are there distinctive texture and / or tastes between a white cauliflower and a violet or a violet blue ?
 
How have u paired  this dish ?
 
 
Happy Holidays.
Margi Cintrano.

Neat!  They hold their color better than blue or purple potatoes too.

Margi, I couldn't tell a taste difference but I didn't have a "regular" cauliflower to do a direct comparison. It certainly tasted delicious - so fresh! I only had the one head (it was an experimental batch so we all just got a little of the harvest, but will plant it next year!) so we just ate it simply with a little butter and salt. Wonderful!

Good Morning, Marissa,
 
Thanks so much for your feedback.
So curious ... as they are so gorgeous ...
 
I enjoy the Mediterranean simplicity when it comes to fresh vegetables:
 
EVOO, Balsamic Modena and a sprinkle of fresh herbs ( basil, parsley, oregano, thyme ) and/or dried spices and: Fine grain Sea Salt & freshly ground peppercorns in rose, green and black ...
 
*** Herbed butter for Corn on Cob ...
 
Have nice wkend.
Margi.
