Baby Purple cauliflower is smaller and much easier to prepare than the mature, larger size purple cauliflower. Measuring just 2 - 4 inches in diameter, its color ranges from light lavender to a deep purple. The entire plant (floret, stalk and leaves) is edible. It's flavor is milder, sweeter, nuttier and free of the bitterness sometimes found in large Purple cauliflower.
Baby Purple cauliflower's peak season is during the fall and winter months.
Baby Purple cauliflower is a cool-season biennial cruciferous vegetable, botanical name Brassica oleracea var. botrytis, belonging to the plant order Capparales. Purple cauliflower's color is due to the presence of the antioxidant anthocyanin, which can also be found in red cabbage and red wine. Purple cauliflower also goes by the variety names Sicilian Violet, Violet Queen and Grafitti cauliflower.
Baby Purple cauliflower is high in both fiber and vitamin C and provides a moderate amount of folate, calcium, potassium and selenium. The Purple variety contains a higher amount of vitamin A than traditional White cauliflower.
A versatile vegetable, Baby Purple cauliflower can be steamed, roasted, stir-fried or used raw. When cooked Purple cauliflower keeps its best color when steamed, sometimes even bringing out brighter shades. The remaining water can turn a surprising shade of green. The petite florets of baby cauliflower are easier than the large variety to segment and the ideal size for adding to pizza, pastas, gratins, frittatas and quiche. Use whole heads of baby cauliflower on vegetable platters or combine with other vegetables for a roasted baby vegetable medley. Their beautiful purple color pairs well with bright green vegetables such as broccoli, green beans and peas. Its petite size makes it ideal for pickling. To store, keep in a perforated plastic bag and refrigerate in the crisper drawer. Do not wash until just before use.
A result of a mutant plant, Purple cauliflower was discovered in the late eighties.
