Winter Purple Cauliflower Bowl

Never have I heard of purple cauliflower until I visited my sweet little farmer’s market last weekend, and I could not resist this beautiful vegetable. I looked up a few recipes and how to cook them and decided on the perfect warm bowl for cooler days. Something I learned about purple cauliflower vs. regular cauliflower is that purple goes exceptionally well with citrus flavor and the internet wasn’t lying on this one! Keep reading for a delicious, super easy and healthy dinner or lunch idea.
