I found this at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. The vegetable was labeled Aspa – broccoflower. The teen waiting on me told me it was a combination asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower.
Since I like all those vegetables, I had great expectations.
The vegetable reminded me a Buddhist temple with all its tower shapes.
I figured I would cook it as I would any of those vegetables and should it should be easy to incorporate into a dish.
I looked it up when I got home and found several references to broccoflower, but none with the asparagus added in. The images looked like the one on my counter so I’m thinking it’s just broccoli and cauliflower inspite of the label.
Then I tasted it – I don’t know if I just happened to pick up a bad one, but it was not good. I couldn’t distinguish any of the individual vegetable tastes, but instead tasted bitterness.
I took some to a friend who also likes these three vegetables and she agreed that it didn’t taste good.
So I don’t know what the problem is. Have any of you had this vegetable? If so, did I just get a bad one?
