Purple Cauliflower

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.[7] 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

What a lovely color. Even knowing it tastes the same, I’d love to try this variety. We eat with our eyes, right?

Such a vibrant color! I’ve never had purple cauliflower: I’ve tried purple garlic before and was sad it did not taste any different than the normal variety

I got one of those in my CSA box a few weeks ago. I was stunned by the color! Sadly, when roasted, it turns kind of gray so I think the best way to eat it is probably raw. Still delicious though!

The coconut tree brought back such fond memories of growing up in Guyana. We had 2 coconut trees in our yard and we lived in the heart of the city! :)
