Romanesco cauliflower with garlic and parsley

    20 min

    If you like cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, you're sure to like romanesco too! It has a slightly sweet, nutty taste. The fact that it looks so beautiful is a bonus. In this recipe it is simply blanched in boiling water, then pan fried in butter and flavoured with garlic and parsley.

    More please, I can’t wait for this veggie to show up in my Imperfect Produce Box again! Thanks.  -  19 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very easy to make and tasty to eat. I've done it with straight cauliflower and with a fancy "green" type of cauliflower I've forgotten the name for. Love them both, a LOT!  -  20 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I received Romanesco in my CSA box, and prepared it just as directed in the recipe - oh, my! This is not only delicious, it makes a beautiful presentation! Adding a few slices of roasted red pepper and/or cooked crumbled bacon would be great garnishes.  -  09 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
