Do you already know him? The Coraletta? This delicious, surprisingly purple vegetable is a bit nutty and sweeter in taste than the well-known green sprout.
More and more people are excited about the surprising recipes that you can prepare with this purple sprout.
The purple color is due to natural anthocyanins, which are originally present in cabbage species. The purple color is simply a variation that nature offers us.
It is bursting with antioxidants that are good for our resistance in the cold winter months.
With Coraletta you can easily bring a special dish to the table.
It adds colour, taste and character to starters, such as a salad with apple and blue cheese and Coraletta can also be included in delicious main courses.
For example, think of Asian noodles with coconut, nuts and Coraletta, or added to side dishes like oven-baked sweet potato, cranberries and walnuts.
Any Way but Boiled
Coraletta can be prepared in many different ways: stir-fried, steamed, baked, roasted or even raw and the taste remains surprisingly delicious. Just don’t boil Coraletta as it will loose its attractive colour.
In short, Coraletta is for anyone who just wants to add a surprising twist to a dish.
