If you have bad childhood memories associated with broccoli, give it another shot. Its nutty, yet sweet, flavor is enhanced by roasting or grilling with a small amount of oil and seasoning. Or, try dipping raw florets in hummus for delicious snack. Broccoli is a nutrient-dense food full of potassium, protein, fiber, and vitamins C and B-6, making it an excellent choice for plant-based diets or to balance out a grilled meat. Related to cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kale, broccoli grows best in cool weather months (spring and fall). Learn how to grow broccoli in your own garden.
