Romanesco

Creepy food hall of fame

Have you ever seen this before? I didn’t think so. I had never seen it in the U.S., but it’s all over the place here. It’s called Romanesco, a strange monster-like head in an even creepier pea-green color. If broccoli and cauliflower were to… you know… breed, I think this would be the love child. It makes me nervous just looking at it. Nevertheless, we bought one at the market and cooked it. I’m always up for trying a new food, despite (sometimes ugly) appearances. While I don’t have any pictures of the final product, we just roasted it with its parents and some carrot for about an hour. And actually, it was quite tasty. I’m even starting to think it’s pretty (must be the accountant in me, it has the Fibonacci sequence in it, nerd alert!). Call me smitten.
