Wednesday, December 13, 2017: Cauliflower Challenge
December 16th, 2017 by Katekoster

Tonight we wanted to figure out if different colored cauliflower tasted different so we bought three types: white, purple and green.  We love the purple and green colors but weren’t sure if they would taste better (or worse) than regular white cauliflower. Our taste test was pretty easy.  We chopped all three kinds up, tossed them in olive oil and salt and pepper, and roasted them in a 400 degree oven.  Then the whole family tasted them.  (We didn’t do a blind taste test so results are not 100% scientific.)

And the winner? Purple!!! But not by much….everyone agreed that all three colors tasted pretty similar but the purple was slightly more tender and tasty.  Mom was convinced that the green cauliflower would taste different because it’s really a mix of broccoli and cauliflower (called romanesco) but it didn’t.  Next time we will add in orange cauliflower and taste with blindfolds. Then we will report back our “scientific” findings.
