Romanesco Brocolli

Once in a while we come across new items in our life. Either when we search for it or came across it by chance. Recently while shopping at a hypermarket in Kuchai Lama, I saw this vegetable, a brocolli group, a plant in the cabbage family, whose large flower head is used as a vegetable. The signage show it as Pagoda Flower. Maybe because of its shape i like a Pagoda.  A search on the internet returns some results and according to wikipedia it is called Romanesco Brocolli.

It is quite rare that we come across such vegetable.

Wikipedia mention this about the cauliflower in its webpage as; Romanesco broccoli resembles a cauliflower, but is of a light green color and theinflorescence (the bud) has an approximate self-similar character, with the branchedmeristems making a logarithmic spiral. In this sense the broccoli's shape approximates a natural fractal; each bud is composed of a series of smaller buds, all arranged in yet another logarithmic spiral. This self-similar pattern continues at several smaller levels.

The vegetable is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber, and carotenoids.
