Farmer's market surprise

Look what I picked up at the farmer's market last week.

Yes, that's orange cauliflower. The vibrant orange color comes from extra beta-carotene, which means this guy has more Vitamin A than it's cream-colored sister. That's reason enough to pick it up at the market. I made a version of this roasted cauliflower recipe with it. Oh and this isn't the only strange color you might see cauliflower around your farmers' market.

Have you found an interesting vegetable or hybrid fruit at your market lately?

I love cauliflower! But I prefer mine stir fried with carrots, snap peas with a generous amount of oyster sauce. Best eaten with rice.

Lovely! Cauliflowers are in season now and they are just so good!

It is gorgeous! I have been going crazy eating the yellow watermelon that is available lately.
