Romanesco is related to the regular cauliflower. Unfortunately it is not commonly known, but it has a lot of nutrients and vitamins and is easily digestible. You can prepare all cauliflower dishes with romanesco and vice versa. This dish is a suitable addition to the other dishes you have received for carbohydrate-free evenings over the last few weeks.
