EATS: Roasted Romanesco with Paprika

photo 5

In addition to turning the Romanesco I picked up from the farmer’s market into a Dr Seuss poem, I’ve made this roasted Romanesco several times with delicious result.  What with the lime green/paprika color scheme; its own fresh, light sweetness; and the added garlicky smoky flavor, it was the perfect side dish for the holidays, or as a beer snack (we did both!).
