Purple Cauliflower 

The purple cauliflower, also called the Violet Queen, gets its bright color from the antioxidant anthocyanin, the same compound that gives red cabbage and red wine their purple hues. Just a half-cup serving of this vibrant veggie provides almost half of your daily requirements for vitamin C, and just like its ivory sister, purple cauliflower has an ample amount of fiber to keep you feeling fuller longer. Try roasting florets with a hint of balsamic vinegar for an easy scrumptious side dish or try substituting the purple variety in my Cauliflower Mashed “Potatoes” recipe to jazz up the dinner table with a pop of fun color.
