If you are looking for an easy, healthy, delicious winter veggie recipe…here it is!
I believe that so many people pass up on this gorgeous winter vegetable because they have no idea how delicious this brassica is, nor what to do with it. I grew up eating this veggie in the winter months in Italy and was so happy when I finally saw it in grocery stores here in the U.S. It’s kind of hard to miss. It looks like a miniature Christmas Tree and tastes like broccoli…but even better!
1 head of Broccoli Romanesco
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons shredded Pecorino Romano Cheese
a pinch of sea salt
fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut off Romanesco florets (as you would broccoli or cauliflower) and place in a medium size bowl.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the Pecorino Romano and toss to coat.
Lay Romanesco in single layer on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, turning once at the halfway point.
Sprinkle remaining shredded Pecorino Romano over the top just before serving.
