Just a picture for you today. Purple cauliflower tastes just white cauliflower. Its a great, colorful addition to crudite platters. We steamed this lightly and dipped it in hummus.
The purple color is caused by the presence of the antioxidant group anthocyanin, which can also be found in red cabbage and red wine. Varieties include ‘Graffiti’ and ‘Purple Cape’. In Great Britain and southern Italy, a broccoli with tiny flower buds is sold as a vegetable under the name “purple cauliflower.” It is not the same as standard cauliflower with a purple curd. - Wikipedia
