Broccoli as a meal?

LJS | Sep 23, 2009 11:21 AM

I am persuaded that broccoli is good for me, but it leaves me cold. Literally, I steam it, put it on the plate, with some butter or olive oil and garlic, roll it around, then put the leftovers into the fridge until I can throw it away again.

But I am trying to build more meals around veggies. I have learned to love sweet potatoes (mmm-baked then dressed with feta cheese, hot peppers and cilantro), squash (mmm-with tomato sauce, sage butter or ginger-marmalde) and mushrooms (mmm-just about anyway you can imagine).

But broccoli?...please, Broccoli lovers out there...inspire me.
