From the Test Kitchen

Believe it or not, cauliflower isn’t always white! Some varieties are orange, purple or Green Ball, like the one we used in this recipe. No matter what the color, it’s always just as nutritious—low in calories, with plenty of vitamin C and fiber, even a little protein. Roasting and browning it in a hot oven is our favorite way of preparing it to caramelize the natural sugars.
