Steamed Romanesco

What is it ? Well if you look at it, it looks like a strange form of broccoli or cauliflower. When I first saw one I thought it looked kind of pre-historic or from outer space. When I tried it, raw, at the market I just fell in love with the flavor - which resembles a bit of a broccoli and a bit of a cauliflower except much sweeter. My favorite way to cook it, is by simply steaming it until it's tender. Then smother in melted butter, that way none of the nutrients are lost and neither is the flavor.
