What's not to like about chicken/brocolli casserole?
I love the stuff. Steamed, fresh, frozen, doesn't matter. Ever since I heard that Bush 41 hated broccoli I decided I would eat his share.
Hmmm. Very interesting ... if true.
Brussel sprouts: Buy them fresh. Wash. With a knife score an "X" hard into the stem (otherwise the tops cook to mush before the stem is tender). Steam until fork-tender. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy.
Ummm.... you're supposed to wash it first....
I love broccoli ping
I peel the first few layers of leaves off the brussles sprouts, then cut in at least halves, quarters if they are big. Then steam and annoint with lots of lemon and salt and pepper. Mmmmmm.... almost as good as broccoli.
The only use for Broccoli that I've ever found is that they can work amazingly well as little trees, glued to a board on an N-gauge railroad.
Seems unlikely. From investigating why my cabbage failed, I can tell you that kale, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, and broccoli are all the same species of plant, Brassica oleracea, all descended from the wild cabbage of southern and western Europe. Its closest relatives, also in the genus Brassica, include wild and cultivated mustard plants, B. napus (the rutabaga), and B. rapa (the turnip). Trivia for the day :)
Well, I read that all these vegetables were developed from a wild cabbage plant in England: Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts and Collards. In fact, this was a correct answer on a question from the game Trivial Pursuit.
England's as good a place as any - makes sense. Anyway, collards too, they're all the same species. And you can crossbreed any or all of them pretty easily, and get some interesting hybrids.
I had a dog once that loved raw broccoli stalks. She would grab one and take it to the couch and chew away.
I still don't want to eat it.
It's better with ketchup.
I can't see how ;~D
"There's a lady I know. If I didn't know her. She'd be the lady I didn't know.
And my lady, she went downtown. She bought some broccoli. She brought it home.
She's chopping broccoli Chopping broccoli. Chopping broccoli. Chopping broccoli.
She's chopping broccoli. She's chopping broccoli. She's chop.. ooh!. She's chopping broccola-ah-ie!"
LOL, I can't hear the word "broccoli" without Dana Carvey immediately coming to mind.
Oh, the 80's. After eating raw broccoli for all that time, I was annoyed to find out that not only was it harder to digest raw, but raw and/or without a little added fat, it was very difficult for our bodies to extract all the nutrients, especially the betacarotene. Thus ending a long 'disagreement' between my sister and I, and 'allowing' me to go back to steaming it and adding a little butter or cheese, or popping it in a salad with dressing.
Yum. I love broccoli.
