Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet with olive oil and set aside. Place the romanesco in a large mixing bowl and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Toss gently with your hands to coat thoroughly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again. Spread the romanesco across the baking sheet and sprinkle additional salt and pepper if desired. Roast for about 20 minutes, or until the tips of the vegetables start to turn brown. When the vegetables are tender crisp, they are ready to eat. Enjoy!
