Bowties with Romanesco

This week you are going to see a fun and funky addition to your box!  Rarely found in the grocery store, this bright green stranger tastes as good as it looks!  Romanesco, aka Romanesco Broccoli, Roman Cauliflower, or Romanesco Cauliflower can be eaten raw, lightly cooked, or cooked fully.  So, what do you treat it like, a Broccoli or a Cauliflower?  I like to treat it like a combination of the two, with a much milder but sweeter flavor.  

You can cook your Romanesco just like you would Broccoli or Cauliflower, roasted in the oven or sautéed in a skillet.  If you consider getting fancy with it, use it in a salad, or try the Bowties and Romanesco recipe above.  I left out the capers due to the fact that fact that my husband hates them.  And as a hint, I ALWAYS use Trader Joes’s frozen garlic.  I love fresh garlic, however, I really don’t have the time to slice or dice it and my bulbs always go gross.  This was a great way to sneak Romanesco to my kids, and believe it or not, somewhat reluctantly, they ate it.

 

Take a look at our Romanesco being harvested.
