Cauliflower shows no signs of losing steam. The versatile vegetable crops up in a range of traditionally grain-based foods on display at the Summer Fancy Food Show.
Cauliflower is a key component in From the Ground Up crackers and pretzels, Outer Aisle Gourmet pizza crusts and sandwich thins, and Cauli-Flour by Caulipower flour and baking mixes. From Kitchen & Love, globally inspired stir-and-go meals feature minced cauliflower as a replacement for rice. Varieties include Moroccan vegetable harissa, Peruvian vegetable ceviche and Indian vegetable curry.
Other new products include cauliflower hummus from Lantana Foods and a grain-free wrap featuring cauliflower and collagen protein from Cali'flour Foods.
“Cauliflower we think really has staying power,” Ms. Purcell said. “We’ve heard over the years what’s going to be the next kale on restaurant menus, and cauliflower was among the things that came up, but now we’re seeing it go from menus into a lot more products.”
