Romanesco and Sweet Potato Au Gratin


Caroline my neighbor invited a number of us over for a potluck, late lunch yesterday.  Great idea and we hope to keep it going.  Because most of the guests were vegetarian or as good as (not me), I wanted to make one of my favorite vegetable casseroles; romanesco, sweet potatoes with a butter rich béchamel and cheese sauce.


I also make this casserole with either cauliflower or broccoli, but I was “gobsmacked” when I saw some suspicious looking cut florets labeled cauliflower/broccoli at the Weiss supermarket!  It doesn’t matter what they called it, I was just pleased that it was available and will keep an eye out because it is grown locally  🙂


I love the colors of the lime green romanesco with the yams.  Tastes good too!  See link at the top for the recipe.

  1. What a great idea for a potlock. Funny they were mislabeled at the store.

  2. Hi Virginia. Maybe that’s what they call them here in Honesdale 🙂
