Romanesco Cauliflower, Organic | Abel & Cole

Romanesco Cauliflower, Organic

(£3.00 each)
Organic Vegan

Romanesco is the Rolls Royce of organic cauliflowers, a real highlight in the seasonal vegetables carousel. Not only is it a work of art but, as it already holds so much flavour, you really don’t have to do that much with it. A touch nutty and a bit less creamy than your average white cauli, we’re huge fans of it tossed into pasta with just some olive oil, garlic and chilli.

Country of Origin - Spain
Class - Minimum Class 2

At this time of year our cauliflowers are from a cooperative of growers in Alicante, Murcia and Campo de Cartagena. They’ve been growing organically since 2006 and the cooperative is founded on the idea that we need to collaborate to help people eat healthier food. The group of farmers look after their soil with careful crop rotation and encourage wildlife on the farms by growing and maintaining the hedgerows.


Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

Storage & prep

Pull away the leaves and slice the cauliflower into florets if you are boiling or steaming it. You should avoid overcooking cauliflower, and attempt to keep it from breaking up. If your piece of cauliflower has a thick stalk, just cut a cross into it, so the boiling water can go right to its centre, to ensure the perfect texture. If you are going to eat your cauliflower raw i.e. salads, dips, keep it well wrapped up in your fridge to keep it fresh. If you are going to cook it, it should still be kept in your fridge, but will keep well enough unwrapped.
