Purple cauliflower is actually a type of broccoli that is purple and turns green upon cooking. It packs the same pigments, called anthocyanins (antioxidant flavonoids) that give blueberries their gorgeous hue. Cauliflower is one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C among cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables can help your body get rid of the toxins that can damage cells and increase the risk of cancer.

Baby Purple Artichokes: Small Size, Big Heart

Fiesoles are special baby artichokes with a rich purple color. They're grown in California, taste rich and nutty and are almost entirely edible because they have no choke inside. Cooking reduces their vibrant hue so I eat them raw (shaved in a salad).
