  • 1 head romanesco
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon juice and zest (about 2 Tablespoons juice)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Remove the leaves from the romanesco. Rinse the head of romanesco and pat dry.

  3. Use a sharp knife to remove the florets. You can leave them large or cut them smaller so that they cook quicker.

  4. Place the florets on a rimmed baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Use a zester to zest the lemon over the romanesco florets. Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a small cup - set aside.

  6. Bake at 425 degrees F, for 25-30 minutes. After you remove the romanesco from the oven, toss with the lemon juice and season with more salt and pepper as needed.
