Frozen foods are really growing on me, especially the packages from Trader Joe’s freezer aisle.
When I was growing up, I preferred my veggies raw. I still do. Mom used canned vegetables, and those were tasty. But when the side dish was pulled from the freezer, it was going to be a flavorless clump of mush.
I’m happy to report a very different finding lately! In this package …
not only are the cauliflower and Romanesco solid and delicious, but…I mean, what is Romanesco?! It’s like futuristic delicacy meets edible art!
Wikipedia starts its description of Romanesco as follows:
“Romanesco broccoli, or Roman cauliflower, is an edible flower of the species Brassica oleracea, and a variant form of cauliflower. First documented in Italy, it is light green in color and is a natural approximation of a fractal.”
Whatever it is, it’s yummy and pretty. And the garlic butter is just as tasty as it was for the serving of Beans so Green I enjoyed a week or two ago.
Thank you, again, Trader Joe’s!
