Romanesco has an identity crisis. No one seems to know for sure if it’s a broccoli or a cauliflower. One indisputable fact though is that the romanesco is a visually stunning vegetable. Not surprising, its taste is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. Its unique growth pattern creates a beautiful rhythmic spiral that looks almost like an illusion. Excellent raw or steamed, romanesco is perfect in a vegetable tray for dipping. To store, place in a plastic bag and refrigerate. Use within 2-3 days for optimum taste and texture.
