Veggies of Pike Place Market

Lobster Mushrooms
Not really a mushroom, its a fungus that grows over mushrooms.  Its has a reddish color and a lobster like taste.  Just make sure they are not slimy when you buy them

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

! 1/2 pounds brussel sprouts
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 garlic cloves minced
Salt and Pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 400.degrees. Cut off stems of the sprouts and pull off any yellow leaves.  Mix all ingredients together an spread on a sheet pan.  Cook for 40 minutes.  For even browning move sprouts on sheet pan  periodically

Broccolini Romanesco 

No this isn't an alien life form it a combination between cauliflower and broccoli.  These two veggies are so close in relation that they can be easily cross bred.   Great for making soup or oven roasting like the brussel sprouts.
