Caulisteaks. Bring it on.


Our friend Joel came over sporting a sack full of beer and what looked like a brain. It was not a brain... it was an orange cauliflower. We were going to feast on caulisteaks! This was a first for us. Sher and I had placed them in the week's menu, but we had no intention of using an orange cauliflower. Surprise! Honestly though, it just tasted a bit more cauliflowery. 
But of course, there's more...According to Cornell University's 
Cornell Chronicle Online


"The genetic mutation 

... allows the vegetable 

to hold more beta-

carotene, which 

causes the orange 

color and is a 

precursor to the 

essential nutrient 

vitamin A."


We also ate mashed potatoes with a delicious silky chickpea gravy from Appetite for Reduction. And of course, we had something green on the plate. Steamed kale is a staple in our diet. It's so good, so simple, and so incredibly healthy. Dip this business in A1 and it's the best stake you'll ever eat. BRAINS!!!!
