它 Broccoli 它

Let it be known that i eat a lot of broccoli. In fact, Im considering eating some broccoli very soon, as it happens. Maybe even sooner than you think, like tomorrow, but Im not going to wait for dinner to eat some broccoli, oh no, Im going to eat some broccoli for LUNCH! YES!

Ive just bought some broccoli and will be eating it for dinner. Steamed because I like the taste of broccoli

Oh! its got to be steamed, I mean unless youre cooking it in a different way, but youd better believe Im steaming mine when Im just eating it as it is. Quick, easy and delicious. Its ready before its overcooked, too!

Theres some chat up thread about roasting and frying, neither of which are really on my to do list. That said Im sure its fine particularly if youre one of those people who are really sensitive to bitterness, but I have my suspicions some people just like the taste of fried things.

I am one of these people, its just Im going to avoid doing it to something I enjoy cooked in the healthy way when the chance arises

Remember how to spell it by thinking that its a curly cabbage. CC

Ill level with you, Ive tried out both methods, and Ive found them to be fine, but basically just more effort. Also, if you but the heads, then theyre REALLY bitter, and no one outside of a select few bitterfans wants that.

Ill tell you what I have been known to do, though, occasionally, and Im talking from time to time, here, Ill steam it for a very short time then stick it into whatever Im cooking, when it gets to the business end of cooking, but Ill only do that rarely.

Just absurdly good veg. Had a posh dinner out for the first time in ages last night, with expensive bits of lamb and fancy cheeses and everything and honestly the best bit was the roast broccoli it came with. Could have eaten my own bodyweight.

Good food, better surname

But not as good as having cubby for a first name

My kids never fail to be amused that the area of London we live right next to is called Broccoli

Yeah, I love broccoli. Probably the only genuinely healthy foodstuff that I actively enjoy eating. Unfortunately its also probably the only genuinely healthy foodstuff that my partner dislikes.

Its great. AFAIK it is the only foodstuff that the Daily Mail has yet to declare causes some terrible illness.

Last night I bought broccolini as we hadnt had that in a while (very often we have rapini). While eating, my girlfriend said shed prefer to have had regular broccoli. I suppose we should have that soon then, its been even longer since we had regular broccoli.
