Freaky Fruit: Romanesco Broccoli
Here’s another oddity to add to the season’s crop of unusual vegetables: Romanesco broccoli. The vegetable – a variant of cauliflower – looks like coral. It’s not exactly the type of thing you’d want to eat at first glance. But farmers say it’s less bitter than broccoli and tastes great when steamed or sautéed. Plus it’s rich in vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids. Why not give it a try? The vegetable is going for about $2.25 a pound at the farmers market.
