Our garden broccoli is ready and gracing the table. Another health bonus? They say Broccoli is the New Means to Reduce Cancer. Aside from the homegrown vitamins and fiber we're enjoying, broccoli has always been a favorite veggie of choice here. Like peas, it's good raw, steamed or mixed in pretty much any kind of pasta. Yum!
Note: because our garden is organic, we did get some of the cabbage loopers hanging out on the harvested broccoli, (they are sneaky little guys!) but if you give the broccoli a short salt-water bath they'll all die off it.
