Riverford Romanesco Pasta (2)

Romanesco cauliflower is  described as tasting like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower but with a nuttier flavour. This is my adaptation  of a recipe provided by the Riverford Organic Box scheme which operates in the UK.Its also good with purple sprouting broccoli instead of the romanesco. The original recipe can also be found online if preferred.

  1. Blanch the romanesco for 2-3 minutes in a pan of boiling salted water. Drain and refresh in a bowl of cold water to stop any further cooking then drain again and set aside.
  2. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions in another pan of boiling salted water.
  3. Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the drained romanesco and fry for 3-5 minutes until just starting to turn a golden colour.
