Roasted Romanesco Broccoli & Poblano Peppers
This dish boasts wonderful depth of flavor thanks to a splash of sherry vinegar and a dash of chili flakes.
1 pound Romanesco broccoli
2 Poblano peppers, seeds removed and sliced into quarters
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
3 tablespoons top-quality sherry vinegar
¼ teaspoon dried chili flakes
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Heat the oven to 425º. Cut the Romanesco so that the stalks are not more than ½-inch thick. Toss Romanesco and Poblanos with the garlic, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt and scatter on a rimmed baking sheet.
2. Roast for 12-15 minutes, tossing the once or twice, until the broccoli turns bright green and is slightly al dente, and peppers have blackened edges.
3. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Toss with the 3 tablespoons of vinegar and ¼ teaspoon chili flakes. Allow to cool a little more. Add more vinegar, chili flakes and salt to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and serve at room temperature.
