When my friend Yael showed up to our book club with a spiraling head of broccoli romanesco in hand, I was floored. “What is this…this…thing? It looks like it belongs on the wall of my senior year calculus classroom,” I internally babbled. It wasn’t long before I took the short walk to our local market, bought some of this bizarre broccoli, and roasted it up with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mmm, tasty. But what else could be done with this crazy cauliflower cousin? I set out to find out and discovered many a tasty recipe for this fractal of a food. Below is a mini photo montage of what I uncovered. Time to start seasoning this seasonal delight and seeing what wonders it has in store!
Have you ever heard of this odd edible? How do you prepare it?
