You'll have to pardon me for getting so excited about produce, but we don't see a lot of different varieties here in the Des Moines area. I hope grocers will continue to get more. The employee we spoke with last night said these were organic and grow naturally this way. They have a different texture than the usual cauliflower but taste the same. Hope my guests won't mind eating purple and chartreuse cauliflower! I don't think they will mind since I've served them purple fingerling potatoes in the past.

While shopping at the local grocery store for some cauliflower to make my cauliflower couscous recipe, my husband and I spotted the most colorful heads we've ever seen. We were so excited to see that the grocery store has started carrying these more unusual varieties. I have seen them in my seed catalogs and always wanted to grow them myself but never got around to it. I especially love the chartreuse one. They also had a cheddar yellow one but I figured two was quite plenty for my cauliflower couscous! Thought I might mix the two of them into my recipe for an extra colorful concoction!
