Yum! My favorite veggie! I have been a tree eater since I was a little girl and all my friends thought it was gross! Always take it in my lunch raw and have flossers because of the inevitable mess in my teeth!

I love it in Chinese food.

Broccoli is the second best vegetable.

In terms of cooking and flavor the winner is the onion. Let's see broccoli do this:

I plan to add my statement to the Wikipedia article some day. In any case, this is a majestic thread, one truly worthy of the Broccoli God, Terrisus.

Did You Know...

Broccoli was founded during the Roman Empire, being native to the Mediterranean and Asia Minor regions. Broccoli did not make it's glorious way to the UK and America until the 1700s, which probably explains why life was so shit for poor people up until that general time.

Broccoli is a staple in my garden every year, along with tomatoes. whats great about it is when it starts blossoming, you can harvest it for a good 6 weeks... at least in my part of the country.

Broccoli is one of the greatest foods. I could eat barrels of it.

Used to hate broccoli when I was much younger. Now I like it but I prefer it raw. Don't like the taste/texture when it's overcooked and all mushy.
It shouldn't be mushy ever. Try tossing it with some EVOO, sea salt and crushed pepper, roasting it at 375 for 15-20 mins for a nice light char on it.

Haha, that's one of my favorite C&Hs!
