Romanesco

by - Monday, December 13, 2010

Yesterday I posted a few photos of the romanesco that I received in my last CSA box. I think it is the coolest looking veggie that I've ever seen! I'm a bit obsessed with it, really. The second that I found it in my box, I immediately started taking photos of it...even before I finished unpacking the rest of the fruits and veggies.

Bloggers are weird, right?

You can use romanesco as you would broccoli or cauliflower. That is, if you can bring yourself to cut into it- that's hard because it is so darn pretty! I chopped and cooked this one in a Thai curry sauce and served it with tofu over brown rice.

Here's a recipe from 101 Cookbooks to give you some inspiration: Cilantro Noodle Bowl

  1. It looks like something you would find growing in the ocean. Where do you get your box from?

  2. Another name for romanesco is "coral broccoli"- it really does look like a sea creature!
