Let it be known that i eat a lot of broccoli. In fact, I’m considering eating some broccoli very soon, as it happens. Maybe even sooner than you think, like tomorrow, but I’m not going to wait for dinner to eat some broccoli, oh no, I’m going to eat some broccoli for LUNCH! YES!
I’ve just bought some broccoli and will be eating it for dinner. Steamed because I like the taste of broccoli
Oh! it’s got to be steamed, I mean unless you’re cooking it in a different way, but you’d better believe I’m steaming mine when I’m just eating it as it is. Quick, easy and delicious. It’s ready before it’s overcooked, too!
There’s some chat up thread about roasting and frying, neither of which are really on my to do list. That said I’m sure it’s fine particularly if you’re 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, it’s just I’m 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 it’s a curly cabbage. CC
I’ll level with you, I’ve tried out both methods, and I’ve found them to be fine, but basically just more effort. Also, if you but the heads, then they’re REALLY bitter, and no one outside of a select few bitterfans wants that.
I’ll tell you what I have been known to do, though, occasionally, and I’m talking from time to time, here, I’ll steam it for a very short time then stick it into whatever I’m cooking, when it gets to the business end of cooking, but I’ll 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 it’s also probably the only genuinely healthy foodstuff that my partner dislikes.
It’s great. AFAIK it is the only foodstuff that the Daily Mail has yet to declare causes some terrible illness.
roast it with garlic, cashews and a drizzle of soy sauce
also very nice raw - peppery!
Sydenham ones just have a drawing of Jason Statham on it with the caption “Sydenham. 'ave it!”
They’re by the same guys who do the I Love New Cross bags
Last night I bought broccolini as we hadn’t had that in a while (very often we have rapini). While eating, my girlfriend said she’d prefer to have had regular broccoli. I suppose we should have that soon then, it’s been even longer since we had regular broccoli.
