Ever seen one of these?
I never knew Romanesco cauliflower even existed until I came across it in the farmer’s market this year. Sure, I’ve seen purple and orange cauliflower, but the Romanesco’s dinosaur-ish shape really caught my eye.
What makes it so interesting is the fact that each of its little peaks is a perfect replica of a whole Romanesco cauliflower. Apparently, if you were to magnify the little points, you would be able to see the fractal pattern repeating itself over and over. An infinite vegetable! I like it.
I incorporated my mini head of cauliflower into dinner via a giant roasted salad, which included turnips and brussels sprouts as well.
It never ceases to amaze me that a simple toss with coconut oil, salt and pepper makes for the most delicious veggies on earth. One of these days someone’s going to slip some tree bark in there and see if I still love it. Chances are high.
A little drizzle of my simple miso-tahini dressing made it all the more interesting.
I’m aware that I’ve failed to acknowledge the heaps of spread piled upon the bread wedges. That was deliberate. The recipe’s a secret, but only for tonight! I’m just waiting for the right moment, bwahaha…
