Don't judge a book by its cover and don't judge a food by its skin.
Sure, some fruits and vegetables look a little boring. But if you slice them open and take a closer look, you might see something beautiful inside. Here are a few examples:
Cabbage: From the outside, cabbages just look like big balls of leaves.
But if you cut it open and take a look at the cross-section, the patterns will amaze you.
And what can you do with this vegetable? Just add some shredded cabbage to corn and peppers to make a colorful salad!
Kiwi: Kiwis don't boast beautiful reds like apples, or deep purples like plums.
Inside however, lies bright green flesh with a star-like pattern that extends from the black seeds towards the edges of the fruit.
Toss some kiwi in a a fruit salad and sprinkle some cacao nibs for a delicious treat !
Beetroot: What lies under the muddy grey skins?
Concentric circles of vivid magenta!
And that gorgeous color can make plain old bread look and taste amazing!
Bananas: We all know what a banana looks like.
But try slicing it with its peel and you will notice the skin's different textures.
And we doubt there is a better way to eat bananas than topping it with ice-cream and hot caramel sauce!
Dragon Fruit: The dragon fruit gets a special mention. It is actually quite interesting to look at from the outside.
... but the speckled interiors are so much cooler!
Eat as is, or use it to decorate a red velvet cake! YUM!
So the next time you see a grey vegetable or a brown fruit, pick it up and try it! You never know what surprises may lie in store!
