Key Ingredient: Cauliflower

I bought some purple cauliflower yesterday, and I am more than a little excited about it. The cruciferous vegetable is showing up at area farmers markets in several colors.

If vibrant hues aren’t enough to convert your skeptical kids — or other friends and family — on the idea of cauliflower, have them taste one of these dishes from our Recipe Finder:

Cabbage, Cauliflower and Potato Chowder (Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post)

Chicken Cardamom Masala With Cashews, which tastes just as good — or better — the day after you make it.

Fried Rice With Cauliflower and Egg, one of Joe Yonan’s Cooking for One recipes.

Tomato-Braised Cauliflower, which softens after a 20- or 30-minute cook time.
