Easy and Delicious Romanesco Broccoli Recipe- Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Allergy Friendly

Have you ever heard of romanesco broccoli? It's one of the weirdest but also one of the most beautiful (in my opinion) vegetables available out there. I had heard of it and seen pictures of it but never bought it since I didn't see any available, but recently I was given a few heads for free, and it made me really excited.

I wanted to make a dish that show cased its unique taste, sort of a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, with some nuttiness and a bit sweeter, while also showcasing its beautiful, strange, and unique appearance. This recipe was the result, and while it's simple, it ended up being the perfect thing to do with it. This recipe is naturally vegan and gluten free and paleo and allergy friendly, and though simple, it tasted terrific.
