It’s a strange vegetable and I was expecting the boys to pronounce it the Devil’s brassica. One won’t eat it as it’s green (and he’s 25!) but the other has taken to it with barely a raised eyebrow.
I love it’s pointy, swirly design but its flavour doesn’t live up to that promise – it’s insipid which probably explains why all recipes roast it with garlic and or lemon. The last of this harvest was lightly boiled and served with roast chicken. I’ll grow it again this year, but will be more adventurous with how I cook and serve it.
I still can’t decide if this is a cauliflower or broccoli – what do you call it?
It’s a cauli. A few years ago I grew several different varieties and colours of cauli’s. I had white ones, yellow ones, green ones and purple ones. I can’t say I noticed much difference in flavour in any of them.
Then again you can’t beat a good cauliflower cheese!
I would call it cauliflower, which I don’t grow as I’m not that fussed about it. xx
I’m going to try some this year. If I can squeeze them in!
It’s a cauliflower and the one I’ve grown most successfully. Beginners’ luck I think.
I think in this day and age it can be whatever it wants to be, I’m growing a purple cauliflower and a purple broccoli, looking forward to seeing what the difference is in flavour and texture as they both look very similar on the packages.
