Spicy Roasted Colored Cauliflower
  • Orange cauliflower is also known as: Cheddar Cauliflower
  • Origin and cultivation: discovered as a spontaneous mutation in 1970 in Canada; improved through breeding at Cornell University
  • Availability: year-round
  • Appearance: bright orange color
  • Flavor: like regular white cauliflower
  • Trivia: Pigment is from beta-carotene (converts to Vitamin A once you eat it), the same as in orange carrots. If you eat a lot of orange cauliflower, or carrots, or anything else with beta-carotene every day, your skin will turn orange, a condition known as carotenemia
