You arrive late to a dinner party, eager to indulge in the delicious meal [insert family member or friend who is an amazing cook] has prepared for the evening.

Cocktail hour is almost over, but before you can stomach your first glass of Chardonnay, you must grab one of the h’ordeuvres everyone is flaunting on their itty bitty napkins.

You make your way to the appetizer table, but in an instant, your hopes are crushed. Amongst empty trays and dishes, a measly run-of-the-mill crudité tray stares back at you. And the only veggie left? Cauliflower. Party fail.

Needless to say, cauliflower gets a pretty bad rep. You know, with its bland taste and weird smell and everything.

Believe me, I used to agree with all of the criticisms against this cruciferous vegetable. Until today, that is!

Romanesco cauliflower (also known as romanesco broccoli or just romanesco) is a cruciferous veggie and member of the brassica family. This means it’s a cousin of broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage.

On first glance, you may think it’s part alien, but once you take a closer look at its intricate design, you’ll realize just how beautiful it is!

But romanesco is more than just pretty looks. Roasting this veggie brings out a flavor reminiscent of the best aspects of both broccoli and cauliflower. Roasted romanesco (especially with lemon and garlic) is an amazing addition to any meal.
