Roundup of HLI – Broccoli is here with a total of 24 entries and I appreciate everyone for taking the time to send in the entries. Broccoli became my favorite vegetable only a few years ago. When I first saw broccoli in the stores I nicknamed them mini trees. .. yeah .. and I could not get myself to eat it because of that. K tried his best to convince me, but nothing worked and years passed until one day I finally decided to give the “mini tree” a try. We used it in pasta and it was delicious and over the years I seem to prefer broccoli over cauliflower .. hmmmm .. never thought I would say that
To be frank I was amazed at how my friends have used broccoli in their recipes. I am sure you will fall in love with broccoli when you try these yummy dishes. We have biriyani, upma, soup, cutlet, salad, etc. for you to choose from. Hopefully broccoli will leave the “hated list’ for some of you
Thanks a bunch friends for your participation and now to the roundup.
