I am cauliflower.
My overall appearance is rather dull,
and my texture questionable.
What are you to do with me?
Raw – I’m really better in chunks,
for dipping, and munching,
surrounded by others more colorful.
I help your plate look well rounded and healthy.
Heat me up and my natural bite will come through –
so partner me with your favorites and I will take on their flavor
and hide in the background.
I’m easily ignored in the market place;
there are so many other tantalizing choices at hand.
But those who know cauliflower
will choose me and know just what to do
to bring out the best in me.
