Oven Roasted Romanesco

It seemed so easy.  And it really was.  This slipping in another new item didn't work with the boys this time.  They had some funny comments and descriptions of the veggie, like, look it's a Christmas tree!  Oh if only they knew...  I loved it.  Does it matter what they think? HA

So here's the science stuff:  Romanesco Broccoli, or Roman Cauliflower, is a variant form of cauliflower.  It was first documented in Italy in the 16th century. Available in spring and fall. It is a relatively good source of potassium and dietary fiber, with some protein.  Good eaten raw or roasted!

Oven Roasted Romanesco

2 lb fresh romanesco, cut from the center core into pieces
1 Tbs minced shallot
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced fresh thyme
2 Tbs EVOO

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Toss all ingredients together and spread onto a baking sheet.  Bake approx. 20 minutes, giving a toss to the baking sheet during cooking.  Serve!

See, so simple.  The boys will eventually learn!~

Eat happy!
