Cauliflower's Power Hour
Easy. Pleasing. AND good looking, cauliflower draws a lot of attention at the Little Italy Mercato. It's user friendly, and can be adapted for a variety of recipes to feed the masses. The Romanesco from Suzie's is the dazzling green love child, "brocco-flower". It takes on a deep, nutty flavor when you turn it into a hot skillet with a bit of salt, olive oil, and spices. The gorgeous white blossoms at Suncoast Farms pair exquisitely with a bit of flaked cyprus salt from Salt Farm and a dash of nutmeg or ground cinnamon from Just Spice. Try roasting the pieces with turnips or beets for a more colorful and sweet dish and serve with a grilled filet of halibut from Poppas' Fresh Fish. Drizzle everything in a bit of avocado oil from Marion's Olive Oil and squeezed lemon juice.
