Inspire Your Inner-Artist with Vegetables (September 6 – September 12)

Are you trying to get your family to eat more fresh garden choices? Cauliflower and broccoli are our go-to fresh vegetables; however, when plated European-style the appeal is transforming. The presentation is created by artfully filling a small bowl with the individual florets of the cauliflower and broccoli – by keeping the stems up. The goal is to invert the filled bowl onto a plate and remove the bowl leaving a beautiful dome bouquet of green and white vegetables. You will need a small stainless-steel bowl. Prepare the individual florets of the cauliflower and broccoli by your choice of lightly steaming or lightly stir-frying. Fit the cauliflower and broccoli tightly into the bowl, as you create a geometric pattern by alternating the color selection. Remember to keep the stems pointed to the center of the bowl. Just before plating, heat the bowl in the oven to heat the vegetables. Invert the bowl onto the serving plate and carefully remove the bowl for an unveiling moment. Look who’s enjoying their vegetables, now! You just need to make it fun and festive. © Kelly McBride Loft
