Serves: 4-6
  • 2 lbs romanesco, cut into florets
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp thyme, chopped
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil - you can boil/blanch or use a steamer basket over a few inches of water to steam romanesco. Place florets into pot and cover. Steam from 3-7 minutes depending on desired doneness. Check a few times throughout the steaming process with fork to check.
  2. While romanesco steams, make butter sauce. Combine butter, olive oil and thyme in a small sauté pan. Heat over medium and cook until butter is melted and thyme is fragrant.
  3. Drain romanesco and return to pot. Drizzle over butter sauce, pepper and salt. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust for seasonings. Serve immediately!
