Can you tell me what it's called?

Yes, Richard. Cauliflower is like zucchini in that it takes on the flavors of other foods.

Raw cauliflower is more like rice, while the zucchini is wetter. It's more like a noodle.

I have used cooked pumpkin and raw Zucchini in smoothies!
They are both great for thickening agents. The pumpkin is great with some cinnamon. The zucchini is more of a chameleon food. it takes on the flavor of what is around it.

I'm just finishing up with the kale from my garden. Fresh is so much better than the store bought. The only good thing about store bought is that I've never found a worm in their kale. I may have eaten a few worms from my garden kale inadvertently.

Whenever possible, I eat fresh kale. My garden is still going strong. I hope to have at least another month of fresh kale, parsley, and basil.

sorrel should be perennial and not require replanting,
maybe as a special treat blend blanched sorrel with basil, oil and nuts to make extended pesto.
this can also be used as a topping for pasta, bread meat and in spinakopita
cheers

Thanks Richard!
I did not know that about sorrel. I'll have to blanch those leaves before I eat them.
It's not one of my favorite veggies, but it's growing well in the garden.

sorrel leaves contain oxalate(not as much as poisonous rhubarb leaves)
this accounts for their tangy flavor
ideally they should be at least blanched in hot or boiling water to remove the oxalate
spinach also contains an even lower level of oxalate again.
cheers

No you didn't Richard. I do know that sorrel is good in small doses, but too much is bad for the system. Not sure why.

Although this article discusses The Best Salad Greens for Your Health, the information is good and gives you the breakdown of different greens you can put in your Green Smoothies. Remember we need to switch up our greens. The only green I would not use is Iceberg Lettuce
