I will never look at cauliflower the same again, Dutchlady! Interesting history, and I had no idea there were other colors and even shapes--how cool is that? Where does one find the more exotic types? I'll bet even my picky kid would've eaten cauliflower when he was little if it was purple...LOL, probably!

Thankyou for your article ...yummy love it any way it comes for fussy children dip small florets into seasoned beaten egg and then into your favourite crumb mix and deep fry until golden ...looks and tastes great (use a healthy oil). Wonderful history lesson :)

Thanks everyone; I like it too! Honestly try some of the Indian recipes, they are really yummy (I guess I should have added a recipe to the article).

DUH - I guess I could do that.
I'll just provide a link; I have made this before. Ghee, by the way, is clarified butter; oil works too.

Mmm, that looks yummy. And there's even directions for making your own curry powder--didn't know you could. Thanks!

Not at all boring! I love cauliflower,also! Cooked or raw is great! I tried the orange colored one also, and it does taste the same. The only problem is when you grow it,if you don't put a poison on it, the larger grub type worms love it also.

KyWoods - any decent Indian cook will make their own curry mixture. The Indian people I knew all ground their spices fresh...

THis was a great article indeed. I had been tempted the get the purple colored one (there's also an orange one) at the grocery store but resisted.

I'll get it next time. You've sold me on cauliflower, Hetti.
