Romanesco Broccoli

There's an unusual looking vegetable called Romanesco Broccoli; it's a cross between common broccoli and cauliflower with little spiny florets. It's origins are Italian from where it gets the Roman name. It has a beautiful light green color with a mild broccoli flavor and it's an easy vegetable to cook. In the photo I cut it up into smaller bite size pieces and sauteed with tomato, garlic and lots of olive oil. It's in season right now- go and get get some to serve along side your favorite foods.
