What the Hell is Romanesco

Walking through market I couldn’t believe Romanesco was 3 for $1. I happily picked two. When I turned to finish my shopping a gentleman asked me “What the hell it is?” I replied “It’s a hybrid of a cauliflower and broccoli, but it tastes more like cauliflower. Cook it the same way you would cook either of those.” Bon Appétit.

  • 2 Romanesco florets
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 lemon sliced into circles
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cap full of Herbnfarm NW Pike Place Herbs

Preparation: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix everything in a bowl with your hands and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, or until tender and slightly charred. Serve warm.

  1. This is good information. I did not know either. I would have asked you the same thing. Did a study on cauliflower and it provides many health nutrients. Broccoli is quite close too. I’ll have to look for the next time I’m at the market.
