Roasted Romanesco Broccoli Steaks
Romanesco broccoli is actually more a type of cauliflower, and it’s first known to have come from Italy, hence the name. The flavor is a bit between broccoli and cauliflower, but more creamy and nutty, and not quite as harsh as cauliflower. When I roasted it, it almost seemed to have the similar sweet aftertaste of an artichoke. I like slicing it in steaks and roasting it to show-off it’s beautiful patterning.
The light green Romanesco broccoli is a very beautiful, mathematical vegetable. The buds showcase a fractal pattern and the spirals are an example of the Fibonacci series, in edible form!
