How To Make Cauliflower Waffles


I had the opportunity to go to my first proper Farmer’s Market last weekend – and wow, did it ever live up to my expectations! Garlic, peppers of all kinds and assortments (stuffed poblanos, anyone?), buffalo meat, eggs, sheep cheese, green beans, homemade soaps, fresh flowers, beautiful pumpkins, and… PURPLE CAULIFLOWER! I was super excited to find purple cauliflower as it’s just at the end of the season and I’ve been on a mission for it.
