Remember this purple cauliflower, Violet Queen?

I cut two heads last nite and my dau-in-law cooked them for supper tonite.
I don't eat cauliflower so she had to tell me what she thought about it.
The cauliflower looked more like a broccoli head than a cauliflower when I cut it. It had more than one stem beneath the head.
She said it turned green when it cooked and it tasted a little like a broccoli more than cauliflower....but with an added great flavor. She loved it. She tried it without any dressing or oils or anything on it to taste its actual flavor.

So if you want something different, but great tasting, try Violet Queen cauliflower.
I got mine from johnnyseeds.com this spring and have enough seeds left in my fridge crisper to start more next year, much to my dau-in-law's happiness.

Next year I'm also going to try the wine-colored cauliflower called Graffiti. In the seed cataalog, the head looks more like a cauliflower than Violet Queen does.

Mmm. Steamed cauliflower with bread crumbs toasted with butter over the top. SO GOOD! I agree, it really does look like broccoli.
