One of the best parts about living in California is the gorgeous local produce that is available year-round. I’d like to think I’ve seen it all when it comes to food, but I still find myself being surprised all of the time. I remember my amazement the first time I saw purple cauliflower at the farmer’s market. Truly something to behold as well as being incredibly nutritious. I always find that if kids are taken with the color of a food, they are more interested in trying it. And what is cooler than purple soup?!

Kenya drinks up this recipe like a smoothie. I like to sprinkle a little grated parmesan on top so even if your little one has an aversion to purple vegetables, the cheese on top may still lure them in!

    1. Thanks for posting this recipe. My veggie phobic 5 year-old ate a whole bowl of this. I love it too! We made it with white cauliflower, red onions and extra fresh grated parm. Delicious.

    2. How much of the stalk can you include in this soup? I kept some on, but wasn’t sure how much. If I include more stalk would it change the flavor? I don’t cook with cauliflower often. Thanks!
