A "New" Vegetable: Romanesco

Ever had romanesco?  I hadn't.  I discovered it on a school field trip to our local Farmer's Market.  It's green, it's spirally, it's firm like cauliflower, tastes like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower and is super yummy!  I took it as a cut vegetable as part of my daughter's school Halloween party.  Getting the kids to try it was a struggle, but the adults did - and went wild over it.  Or maybe it was just my home made dressing... ;-)  Many kids did try it after the adults raved.

Next time you need a new spin on broccoli (or cauliflower), give romanesco a try!
