I'm going to be blogging a little more about food because of the Trick or treat challenge I’m a part of. I also had vowed to try different foods and over the years I have seen different color cauliflower, but for some reason I always stayed with the basic white. I was probably just staying in my comfort zone. I also just started trying more tying more types of squash this year. I regress…
Since I was curious I picked up an orange cauliflower when I shopped this week and cooked some up tonight for dinner. I had actually wanted the purple one, but they had a few spots on them so I bought the orange. I thought there would be some difference in taste, but I did not notice any difference from the white one.
I had to look it up to see what the difference was and the orange, also called “chedder” has more beta-carotene providing more vitamin A. Next week I may have to try the purple if they still have it because that one gets its color from anthocyanin, which may help prevent heart disease. To think I thought it was just providing me an interesting color for my meals.
