Green Italian Broccoli
Estimated price per piece
The broccoli is a member of the cabbage family and is closely related to the cauliflower. Its cultivation originated in Italy. 'Broccolo', its Italian name, means "cabbage sprout." Because of its different components, broccoli provides a range of tastes and textures from soft and flowery (the floret) to fibrous and crunchy (the stem and stalk). Do not let the smell of the sulfur compounds that are released while cooking keep you away from this highly nutritious vegetable.
Raw - in a spicy raw salad with extra virgin olive oil, chili pepper, and some garlic. Delicious!
Steamed - Probably the easiest way to eat a head of broccoli. You can steam broccoli stalks in the microwave quickly and easily. Serve with a little salt, vinegar, and olive oil.
Roasted - Crispier and darker in flavor than the ubiquitous steamed broccoli, roasting is just as easy. Great with a little Parmesan cheese!
With pasta - There's something about the texture and taste of broccoli that we really love paired with pasta. We like it as a vegetable tossed into sausage pasta, and as an addition to a healthy feta and broccoli pasta salad.
As a pasta sauce! - But broccoli isn't just an addition to pasta; it can also be the sauce! A little oil and cheese transforms steamed broccoli into creamy, delicate green pasta sauce. It's really delicious and a great way to eat your veggies.
