It's not my favourite veg, but broccoli is pretty fun. Each floret is like a little tree and sometimes, while tucking into a steamed piece, I like to imagine that I'm a giraffe eating all of the leaves off a tree. (Weird, I know.) I hate eating the stalks, but I seem to be the only one who finds them totally gross! That's probably a bad thing though, I assume that most of the fibre sits in the stalk. What I do know, however, is that this bundle of green leafiness is packed full of Vitamin C, folate and a heap of cancer-fighting goodies… No wonder Mum and Dad always
If you're not the biggest fan of this green leafy, try my broccoli and cheddar soup. When blended up with a handful of cheese and topped with crunchy sourdough, broccoli doesn't get much better.
