Sometimes a farmer all of a sudden has a large yield of a certain vegetable, for which the demand is not so high. This week, for example, we have Romanesco broccoli and pumpkin in our package, which really helps the farmers to sell this produce. Did you know that Romanesco broccoli was first found in Italy (hence the name which refers to Rome), and that it’s considered a hybrid between cauliflower and broccoli? It has a delicate, nutty flavor and is great as accompaniment for a pasta dish or roasted from the oven with some nuts and potatoes. And because it’s shape resembles a fractal (a type of geometric figure), it’s also very pretty.
Looking for more inspiration? Have a look on www.degezondesuper.nl! On this new website, founded by Lennard van der Poel, you can find recipes with the vegetables that are in your Lekkernassûh package every week. You can also easily order the other ingredients that you need through this website.
