{foto friday – radical romanesco}

15 Nov

not quite broccoli, not quite cabbage, not quite cauliflower… romanesco is in a category all its own.


i’ve written a few times about romanesco… it’s one of my favourite things ever. you can probably still find romanesco at some supermarkets and specialty produce departments…

when i found this super awesome-looking and wonderfully-coloured one, i nabbed it up just so i could have a foto-session with it. i just find their fractal-nature so fascinating!!!  “roman” and i had a lot of fun with the camera… i talk to my food – so what! and i hadn’t really seen one like this before – with the variation in colour.  i am of the mentality that anything with natural colour is good for you… and the more, the better.

i just like to saute my romanesco in some yummy EVOO or butter and eat it up! it’s also really good just raw in a salad. the flavour is amazing, and i don’t know what it is about eating a “fractal”, but it just makes me happy.





i mean, it’s amazing, right?!



have a great weekend!  and happy eating!
