Romanesco broccoli: two anti-waste recipes – Italian Cuisine

Two recipes, one broccoli (Romanesco). Here is the perfect menu to cook Romanesco broccoli and don't waste even a little

Applies a little to all vegetables, but with a Romanesco broccoli you can really make a tasty menu, with few ingredients, usually at home and zero (but really zero) waste. These two dishes can act as single dish if you combine them with basmati rice and diced chicken, for example, in the case of orange broccoli.

Romanesco broccoli with orange

It is excellent as side dish, to season the pasta. If you combine egg and Parmesan, it becomes a stuffed for the ravioli.


1 Romanesco broccoli 1 kg
1 clove of garlic
extra virgin olive oil
1 organic orange
soy sauce

Divide the broccoli into chunks with your hands, following its typical inflorescences. Keep aside (do not throw away, core and leaves).
Cook it in a pressure cooker for 5 minutes, steaming.
Fry 1 clove of garlic in 2 tablespoons of oil, then add the broccoli and the grated peel of half an orange.
Season with salt then blend with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
