What is this? #1

When I saw this vegetable at the market I decided I would buy it, paint it, post it online to find out what it is, and then eat it. Unfortunately, painting it was a lot harder than I expected. If you can recognize the above vegetable, good on you- it came out looking a little too ethereal to be edible, more cloud than vegetable. So after struggling to paint it in watercolors (it's essentially all a glossy white, which is a bit of a challenge to paint), I never posted it online, and eventually had to throw the poor vegetable into the food waste. Well, maybe it's not too late-- can anyone help me figure out what this is? I'd like to head back to the market and pick up another.
