Glad you enjoyed the book Simona! As you well know, soup is my go-to comfort food too! Romanesco broccoli is so gorgeous--that black and white photograph is simply stunning. The soup looks delicious--I love that the nut butter plays up the nuttiness of the Romanesco. Thank you for your CTB post and for sharing with Souper Sundays too. ;-)

Simona Carini

Yes, I know we share a passion with soup, Deb :) You're welcome!


A favorite vegetable, the beauty of fractals makes me want to keep it whole, just drizzled with a cheese sauce. However, your soup is a winner, and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Simona Carini

I am with you, Claudia. I sometimes cut it into florets, roast it, dress it and eat it like that to admire the pretty shape while eating. Such a marvel of nature :)

Wendy Klik

What a wonderful soup....We have looong cold winters here in Michigan so I am always happy for another comforting soup recipe.

Camilla M Mann

I am a year-round soup eater as well! I haven't picked up a head of romanesco recently. I will have to fix that soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

Debra Eliotseats

Such simple ingredients which yield a delicious soup. Love your photos!

Soup is always so comforting, especially with all the snow we are getting here on the East Coast. And I love broccoli so what's not to like about this..... We are due to be snowbound all this coming week, so these ingredients will go on my grocery list for later today.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Wendy. Hot soup are necessary to survive winter :)

You're welcome, Camilla :)

Thank you, Debra :)

Good luck with the upcoming storm, Cathy :)


The words "We crave what is unusual" - totally agree with that. I have craved for something that I had tasted once which was not an usual one. I am too a soup person and love romanesco. I still admire its geometrical pattern. I have one in my fridge and would love to try this soup.

Simona Carini

Welcome, Radha. Romanesco's shape is fascinating and its flavor excellent so it's perfect :)
