  1. perfect timing! I have some purple cauliflower in the fridge from last weeks Farmer’s Market and was wondering how to cook it so the colour doesn’t fade as much as when it’s boiled. thanks heaps for the inspiration. Nic x

  2. This looks such a tasty idea that I am going to try it soon. It is nice to see a good variation for cauliflower. During the summer there was (bad) news that cauliflower was getting less popular because broccoli was being promoted so much as a wonder veg. We love both in our house.
