The Romance of Romanesco

Romanesco has got to be one of the most beautiful items in the Produce Department. It looks like broccoli and cauliflower had a baby in outer space! In addition to its beautiful fractal pattern, Romanesco is packed with nutrients and easy to prepare in a variety of ways. Grown in Italy since the 16th Century, it can be used as a substitute for broccoli or cauliflower in many recipes, although it is milder than either one, with a nutty, earthy flavor. Romanesco is plentiful right now, so it's a great time to try it in a soup, salad, tapenade or tart!
