Look what we found at the Farmer’s Market a week or two ago:
At the time, we called it a fractal cauliflower, but I’ve since learned it’s not a cauliflower at all. It’s actually Romanesco broccoli.
It’s shaped like cauliflower (more or less), but it tastes like broccoli (mostly). I can hear The Ten-Year-Old’s Uncle Phil from here: “Worst of both worlds.”
We actually like broccoli though, so we roasted it using our go-to broccoli recipe, and it was fabulous.
I can’t wait to see what surprises the winter farmer’s market holds for us next week.
