Day after day, we devote our little corner of cyberspace to the trendiest products, services and entertainment. So what a surprise when we were walking through the produce department and came across something so fashion-forward that our shopping cart screeched to a halt.
All because of a little designer line from the fashion house of Mother Nature.
Foodies of the world, meet Coral Broccoli (doesn’t she have a show at the Rose Room at 9:30?). Also known as Romanesco Broccoli, this naturally occurring vegetable (no genetic tampering by Dick Cheney and his evil minions) is sure to be a showstopper at your next dinner party or Pillsbury Bake-Off.
The color is sort of what you’d expect if broccoli and cauliflower had a bastard love child, but the flavor is subtle, earthy and perfect raw or gently steamed.
So next time you want your crudités to be less crude or your stir-fry to cause a stir, add this little baby to your shopping list.
Going green just got tastier.
