Have you seen this whimsical vegetable in your supermarket?  It’s an Italian veggie that makes it’s debut in the fall in my town.  It looks like turrets are poking up the head of this Dr. Seuss looking vegetable.  But I’d eat it anywhere!  It’s a lovely addition to your Thanksgiving table.  Check out this delicious, simple, healthy recipe!

1/4 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 1/2  teaspoon capers
1 1/2 lb romanesco, trimmed, cut into pieces
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil, garlic, and capers on MEDIUM-LOW. Cook, stirring, 2-3 min
  2. Raise heat to HIGH. Add romanesco, water, and salt. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer; cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 min or until water is evaporated.
  3. Season to taste with pepper.
