Purple Cauliflower

Today MoFo prompted us to make a dish inspired by a color of our choosing. Green is usually the only color I care about on my plate but I'm not ashamed to admit that I love beets. So much in fact that people call me the Dwight Schrute of Boise. Although no one has ever actually called me that, I still think it might stick one day. Seriously though I need you to understand how much I love nature's candy. Also I think we can all agree that beets are some of the most beautiful of nature's creations which is why I decided to create a dish inspired by the beet's gorgeous hue. You may be asking yourself why I am going on an on about beets when this post is clearly about cauliflower.

Plot twist: when I went to the store to grab some ingredients for the epic beet dish I conceptualized, I got totally distracted by this big beautiful purple cauliflower. As soon as I picked it up the future changed, we fell in love, and my epic 5 hour kitchen and beet adventure was cancelled. This cauliflower was so beautiful I couldn't even make myself make something with it. So I just roasted the sucker whole and served it on a bed of steamed purple kale that was tossed with fresh red cabbage and beet puree. Also, I shaved up some purple carrots and red onion and got them crispy in my air fryer.

I thought about doing something more extensive with the flower but damn it's just too beautiful. I really wanted to keep this super simple and highlight the natural colors; all while enjoying the natural flavors of these veggies.

ICYMI, yesterday I revealed my petty side and a F*U* recipe for the haters: Savory Monkey Bread.

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,
