Romanesco tossed with olive oil, minced garlic, and salt then roasted until slightly browned and charred. This roasted garlic Romanesco with fresh herbs is simple yet delicious, perfect alone or as a side.
  • 1 small romanesco (or ½ large one), chopped
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oik
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red peppers
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs (mint, basil, perilla)
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease with olive oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the chopped romanesco, minced garlic, olive oil, and a little bit of salt together until well mixed.
  3. Place the romanesco in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, turning them over 10 minutes in. Sometimes I leave them in the oven a little longer because I like them a little more browned.
  4. Serve the roasted garlic romanesco with fresh herbs warm with a sprinkle of crushed red peppers.
