Alien Broccoli

Look what showed up in my Dandelion Organic Delivery the other day. This weird looking species of broccoli that looks like it stepped out of a Doctor Seuss book. It's kind of like a cross between a cauliflower and a head of broccoli in both taste and texture.

It looks rather small at first glance but the florets are packed so close together that once you start breaking them apart, it seems to go on forever. Keep your eye out for this interesting vegetable at a farmer's market or speciality grocery store near you. If you're able to get your hands on one, I recommend roasting with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper, and then serving with lemon wedges. Delicious!
