Yes, it is butt ugly!! Looks like a Christmas tree that has gone amok on steroids. I'd be afraid to even bring it into my home for fear that it would attack me.

IMHO God or Mother Nature did a fine job!

It looks much more interesting than a potato or a turnip!

I think Mother Nature's hormones ran amok when she made that. Perhaps she did it when she was going through the change. She must have been having one of her hot flashes.

I first saw Romanesco in Tacoma, Wa., while visiting my family out there. Sprout was showing me a couple of great places to purchase fresh veggies. She pointed the Romanesco out to me as an interesting looking veggie. I had to have some, so we bought a head of it. We loved it. If I recall, it tastes similar to cauliflower. I also love both cauliflower, and broccoli. I've never had broccolini and so can't comment on it.

Just last week, I made a bisque from broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, leeks, creamed corn, and a touch of pepperoni used as a seasoning. It came out yummy, and not like anything I would have expected. It came out so creamy and light, and with such a fresh flavor, it would make a great appetizer.

Don't ask me how I came up with the recipe, because I haven't a clue where they come from. Ingredients just seem to pop into my head that I think will go well together, and then I can imagine the flavor of them, as if I'd had it before.

Anyway, another thing I don't want to see on my plate, is any member of the mint family, either as a flavoring, or candy, or leafy substance, except for basil and oregano. I love those two. You can keep horehound and black licorice as well. But anise and molasses are used in my cooking.

Chief, a great idea! I made a nice soup from my roasted cauli, garlic, onions, and carrots. DH tasted it and proclaimed, " It needs something.". He couldn't tell me what. I thought it was fine. But will add some corn and some turkey pepperoni. If he doesn't like it after that, tough noogies.
