There was a time in the not too distant past that the potato was, hands down, the most versatile vegetable.
The sheer catalog of delicious things we could make with them is impressive. Some of my favs include baked potatoes, skillet potatoes, hash browns, alcohol, french fries, mashed potatoes, tator tots, potato salad, chips, latkas and scallop potatoes. Not too mention several gluten free items like pasta and bread.
Without doubt this root vegetable is one resourceful, all purpose starchy plant.
But then Cauliflower hit the scene and was like “move over spud there is a new stud in town.”
