Roasted Romanesco Cauliflower

Dear Romanesco Cauliflower,

How have I not met you before this moment?

How casually I walked through my organic market searching for eggplant, sweet potatoes and cabbage ignoring your mere existence all these years. Then you appeared suddenly in front of me, all swirly and mesmerizing, standing out amongst the other produce.

Sure, I may be labeled as easy and perhaps shallow for just falling in love with that unique look of yours and knew I had to have you.

I took you home, not sure of what I was going to do but knew I had to do something….

So, I chopped you up, roasted you with some olive oil, pine nuts, garlic and a spritz of liquid aminos.

Are you a broccoli? Are you a cauliflower? I don’t know and I don’t care. When roasted up simply with some olive oil and pine nuts, you are just good, good, good.

We shall meet again, I’m sure.
