The rutabaga might look like turnips, but there are several differences. They are not as bitter tasting and they are yellow, not purple and white like my turnips. I have not tried the leaves. Anyone know is they are good/edible?

I have a profusion of cauliflower this year. I need to find more recipes that use it. So far, I have made cauliflower curry, cauliflower and leek kugel and steamed cauliflower put in a tortilla with hummous, broccoli, tomato and lettuce. The latter was Hanaleah’s dinner last night.

If you have any recipes that you think I would like with cauliflower, please do share. I am going to pickle some.

Try roasted cauliflower, sicilian broccoli and cauliflower pasta, use them to stuff hash browns, cauliflower and mushroom pot pie, sweet and sour tempeh with cauliflower, braised cauliflower with three seed sauce, steam them and drizzle them with a lemon mustard sauce, add them to sesame noodles, rutabaga soup, or miso soup. You can prepare them Italian-style with raisins, pine nuts, and saffron, or with red wine and olives. I have tried most of these recipes, even if they’re not yet on my blog, so just let me know if you want any of them.
