A Few Cauliflower Ideas

I'm so excited that this weekend is a Brown Box Veggies weekend. Between being out of town last month and then Independence Day, it's been a whole month since we've had our fresh, local veggies in the house. Let me tell you that I am not a fan of buying produce at the grocery store anymore.


Anyway, one of the nice things is that they announce their Facebook page the week before what they intend to pack in the boxes. There are substitutions depending actual availability, of course, but you can general start planning early how you want to cook and eat your veggies.

This week, we're expecting this awesome haul:

  • cauliflower
  • carrots
  • collard bunches
  • sweet white corn 
  • Romaine lettuce 
  • purple hull peas
  • green bell peppers
  • cucumbers
  • fresh herb bunches
  • cherry tomatoes 
  • blueberries 
  • peaches
  • cantaloupes


Since cauliflower seems to be the challenge to use at my house, I thought I'd start hunting for ideas so that it doesn't go bad and wind up in the compost pile..
