    Cant quite remember its name is a Romanesco or something but they are beautiful looking. I have steamed one, left it whole and served it up au naturale but maybe you was thinking of something more exotic.

    Found this recipe for your Romanesco thats if you havent had it already.
    Can easily be adapted with frylite and syns for cheese would be 3.


    Easy Romanesco cauliflower recipe

    1. Wash and chop into florets, as you would with “regular” cauliflower or broccoli.

    2. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 / 190 degrees centigrade.

    3. Toss florets in a bowl with a splosh of olive oil (I used a couple of tablespoons), a couple of cloves of slice garlic, salt, pepper and a handful of grated Parmesan. If you don’t have Parmesan or Grana Padano, any strong hard cheese will do (mature cheddar, for example).

    4. Spread onto an oven tray and roast for about 20-25 minutes. Serve piping hot.

    Seriously, that’s all there is to it. Much easier than regular cauliflower cheese! It tastes surprisingly tender and delicious: the cheese gives it that little kick, and Romanesco has none of the bitterness or sourness that broccoli and cauliflower can sometimes have.

    I served this as a side dish, with a salad and grilled sardines. I recommend that if you see a Romanesco cauliflower on special in your local shop or supermarket, don’t be shy! Give it a try.

    I just bought two of these at the farmers market. I am planning on roasting and then using it with some roasted garlic pureed into a soup. Will leave some florets to decorate, will update how it goes!
