Purple Cauliflower Casserole

Purple Cauliflower Casserole Recipe

I happened up this head of purple cauliflower while in the produce section of my favorite grocery store.  It was so pretty and I wondered if it tasted the same as regular, white cauliflower….and yes, it tastes exactly the same.  This dish is a great complement to dinner and provided much discussion!  A little bit of science while eating dinner with the family never hurts!
