I discovered a cool new vegetable the other day. I had no idea what it was when I bought it but it looked like a mix between cauliflower and broccoli and it was on SALE! When veggies are on sale I swoop them up quick! I love having lots of different kinds of veggies on hand both frozen and fresh. Here it is called Romanesko. I looked it up on line and it has 2 names Romanesco broccoli or Roman cauliflower.
The texture is closer to a cauliflower’s, just a little firmer but the taste is closer to that of broccoli – slightly green tasting when raw. I cooked it like I would cauliflower – added it to a chicken stir-fry once and steamed it once adding salt and butter. As long as you don’t cook them too long they remain bright green and retain their beautiful shape.
It is full of vitamin C and fiber. A great health food! If you ever come across it you should give it a try. It will add a little pizzazz to your day…eye candy!
