Have you ever seen one of these?
I hadn’t until I moved to Algeciras. It is called Romanesco in Spanish, which is infinitely better than the three name variations I have found in English. We can’t decide whether to call it Broccoflower, Romaneso Broccoli, or Roman Cauliflower. So basically, we don’t know what the heck it is.
But it’s gorgeous, isn’t it. Almost too pretty to eat. At least that was the line that Yago was going to try to feed me.
“This pretty little thing, Mommy? You don’t really think we should eat it, do you?”
“NOOOOOOOO! She IS going to make me eat the…. , the whatever you call this thing. “
” I will pull out every last fractoral shaped floret. Kill the broccoli, or cauliflower, or whatever the heck this crazy vegetable is.”
Full disclosure: It tastes more like cauliflower than broccoli, but needs a light hand with the steamer or it gets a bit mushy. And the kid ate it with no complaints.
What do you think of the buzz cut?
