The art of frozen food from Trader Joe’s

13 Feb

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 …

Freezer aisle delicacy

not only are the cauliflower and Romanesco solid and delicious, but…I mean, what is Romanesco?! It’s like futuristic delicacy meets edible art!

Trader Joe's offers the coolest food

Edible art: Cool food in the frozen section.

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!

And thank you for visiting Things I Love at Trader Joe’s! Have you tried/seen Romanesco? Any favorite recipes? What are your thoughts?
