Ingredient Spotlight: CSA Box #7


This week's box from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative included:

1 Head Baby Romanesco Cauliflower - Rolling Ridge Farm
1 Bunch Fresh Yellow Onions - Sunrise Ridge Organics
1 Bunch Red Kale - Windy Hollow Organics
1 Head Green or Red Butterhead Lettuce - Echo Valley Organics
1 Slicing Cucumber - Elm Tree Organics
1 Bunch Cilantro - Noble Herbs

Joining the CSA has been a great way to introduce myself to new vegetables -- this week's newbie-to-me is the baby romanesco cauliflower. It definitely doesn't look like the cauliflower that I'm used to! Apparently the taste of the baby romanesco is like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. Good thing, given that I much prefer the taste of broccoli over cauliflower.
Here are a few recipes I've got my eye on to try out this week:


Yup, clearly I've got a thing for curried cauliflower. It's one of my favorite things to get at the cold food bar at Whole Foods.
