No, its just cauliflower that looks pretty. If you cook it, the water is a beautiful blue. The purple fades a bit with cooking though.
Thst sounds reslly good! Does the purple change the taste?
Rick grew purple cauliflowers this year, along with the whites, & that is beautiful in salads. I used the purple, & white, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, red pepper, onion, radish, rainbow pasta, stuffed green olives, & mayonnaise.
My friend is on a low carb diet. I'm not a fan of those diets, and I can't eat low carb because I only have a partial stomach, and complex carbs keep me going. But, I support my friend in his journey, and want to help. It's especially complicated because I'm vegetarian. So for him, no bread, no potatoes, no cornbread. What to do?
Omelets make a good meal. I made one with saute mushrooms, goat cheese, and jalapenos, that we both liked. Another thing we liked was marinade vegetables (zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, onions) in a vinegar and oil base with garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Then grill in a grilling basket, over wood flames. That went well.
Today I made the traditional midwest potato salad, my favorite. Except, I steamed cauliflower florets until tender but not mushy, let it cool, and used that cup for cup instead of cooked potatoes. I also steamed a jalapeno at the same time, to tenderize it, and diced that into the nonpotato salad. This turned out really tasty. I love potatoes, but for a carb-avoiding companion, the cauliflower nonpotato salad turned out really good. For color, I used the golden cauliflower, but normal white cauliflower would be just as good.
Joan, That's a great recommendation! Multiple pies it is.
OK Randy, my bad typing got me again. Blueberry. :-)
I have some freshly dug potatoes cooking now for potato salad. Lots of carbs, but my weight is dropping so it doesn't matter.
Maybe a pie today. Not sure. I've made a couple and frozen slices for later. That works out nicely.
Ever since I got sick from eating pumpkin pie following a Thanksgiving feast when I was a kid, I've had trouble enjoying it. However, I made a sweet potato pie for last night's family gathering (see "Learners coffee shack" group), and it was delicious. Same texture, yet different taste.
I gotta know what a "brueberry" pie is! Happy decision making, Daniel!
How about one of each? Rhubarb this week? Brueberry week two? Peach week three?
As to the Mini Cooking, No Thanks! I like to cook big stuff, like Russet potatoes, Mac & Cheese, corn on th cob,
The only scraps in my kitchen are vegetable and fruit scraps :-) For the most part.
I thinkIit's time for another, real, pie soon. Ning will be in China for a month, so I dont have to cook cardiac healthy. What kind? Rhubarb? Brueberry? Peach?
Spud, when I was a little girl, up until about the age of five or six, my dad owned a slaughter house and a butcher shop. We, the family, had to eat the meat that wasn't bought from the shop, so we had lots of pig-tail soup, brains, lungs, hearts, livers, and tongues of all animals, I loved the soup, hated rest. To this day I don't even like to see them.
When I was in school, dad worked in construction, my mother worked as a nurse, I did the housework and cooking. Dad brought all these items and I was to cook them. Oh! how I hated them. I still do.
