    I like broccoli.
    I know, it's a little out there thread, but is there something out there that you like but just won't admit it? It don't have to be food related....Anything.
    :D

    I prefer it raw. Will eat it about anyway. Not a fan of it drowned in cheese.

    I don't like cheese on any of my veggies.

    I like broccoli. I also like Brussels sprouts but it does bad things to my GI tract.

    I like fruitcake.....many people don't.

    I have a lot of 'quirks'. Too many to list.

    Best quick broccoli recipe:

    Wash and cut up broccoli into bite-size pieces.
    Place in a microwave safe bowl with just a dribble of tap water & cover tightly with plastic wrap.
    Microwave on high for 2 1/2 to 3 min. (depending on oven wattage)
    Allow to steam itself, covered for 2 -3 more min.
    Serve hot, drizzled with Balsamic vinegar and salt.

    Quick, simple, low fat and pretty healthy.

    Broccoli & Garlic

    One of my favorites from an Italian cook book I use regularly:
    • Cut off individual pieces from broccoli crown and blanch until they just start to get soft then put in cold water to cool (you can do this in advance) and dry off excess water
    • Heat some minced garlic in a few tbls. olive oil in fry pan then put in blanched broccoli and cook for only a minute or two.
    • Garnish with chopped parsley, pepper and salt to taste and serve.
    This goes great with grilled meat and roast potatoes, in fact, made up my mind on tonight's dinner.

    Well now , according to weather trends , prevailing winds and your "Demographics" , by the rule of "Deductive" reasoning , I have a theory..!:)

    The correlation between the O-zone and the last time yue-d eaten broccoli or sprouts,is in (FACT) ,is in direct relativity , and all other given data..!

    PROGNOSIS: You must (RE-CYCLE) yur "Spent gases", as it were , recaptured in perhaps , a 500 gal. LP tank.....! :p

    Cows farts..? Now that would be a whole another issue , and YES , I have a (THEORY).......! :D

    I have done similar with corn. If you lightly fry some corn, it really releases the sugars in it and it is incredibly delicious. Just fry until a little hint of brown shows. It's great!!! You can do it with canned or frozen corn but it is best with fresh corn.

    Sounds good. I'll try it sometime and pass on the idea to my daughter, she's a vegetarian.

    I love brocolli raw with a dip, steamed, with cheese, in other recipes.

    And of all cakes, home made fruitcake in my fave.

    Also love breaded and deep fried cauliflower.:)
