I remember when Miss Pepper was put on an eczema friendly diet a few years ago that excluded broccoli. Oh how she cried. And oh how hard it was to imagine that something like broccoli could cause her pain. I'm super glad she outgrew that one.
Our family favourite ways to eat broccoli are steamed, stir fried, in salads, in lasagnas and in omelettes. I like the idea of making tempura broccoli and adding them to rice paper rolls and soups, but haven't yet. I also hear that the stems are at their tastiest when peeled but keep forgetting to do so. Also I know people eat the florets raw and even the leaves, but I'm not crazy about that.
I keep dreaming of other broccoli concoctions every time I walk past their garden bed.
Are you loving the old broc at the moment too?
What's your favourite way to enjoy the flowery green?
How about a bridal broccoli bouquet?
What does your kitchen garden grow at the mo?
Are you having a lovely week so far?
I hope so.
See ya later, hot potata.
I'm going to have a cup of tea, broccoli!
