When broccoli met cauliflower

Ever seen one of these beauties before? Behold, the broccoflower! Also known as the baby of broccoli & cauliflower, or commonly known as a green cauli. Similar in shape and texture to cauliflower, but flaunting the colour of broccoli, this really is magnificent a mash up of the two. Check out our recent recipe that featured in My Gluten Free Bag, using new season broccoflower. It's delicious roasted, steamed, or even enjoyed raw!
