Roman Cooked Puntarelle



Hello Foodies! How are you? Today another classic winter recipe here in Italy or I better say in Rome!: “le puntarelle”. What are they? If you are not Roman, probably you do not know them. It is a type of vegetable that has a particularly bitter flavor, for this reason is also known as “chicory asparagus” or “Catalonia”. It is cultivated in the surrounds of Rome. This chicory can be served as a side dish or first course. It is possible to eat it raw … but today we present the cooked version. Yummy! This recipe has been sent by a new collaborator: my dearest friend, Manu, a great foodie and cook! As she is Roman, often eats classic recipes of the Eternal City! Hopefully she’ll send us more recipes like this! In the meantime … here comes this wonderful Roman recipe! We hope you’ll enjoy it! A must when in Rome in winter time! 😉 Read more
