Roasted Romanesco


 "Friday I'm in Love" ~The Cure

Let me introduce you to the prettiest vegetable there is...romanesco. It is in the cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts & cabbage family, with a flavor most similar to cauliflower. Definitely nothing to be afraid of, and definitely something you should grab if you see it in your grocery (I found mine @wholefoods)! A wonderfully simple addition to a special dinner to pretty up your plate, but not complicate your meal. What would you serve this beauty with?

*I drizzled mine with evoo, salt and roasted the florets for about 20-25 minutes at 425º and served it with a spoonful of marinara, freshly ground pepper and vegan "parmesan".

For the vegan “parmesan”:
½ c raw cashews 
2 T nutritional yeast
⅛ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until cashews break down to the texture of store bought parmesan.
