This is a post dedicated to the most detested green in the history of green vegetables so brace yourself. This green-cauliflower doppelganger isn’t a favoured vegetable among humans. Boiled or roasted, they haven’t been widely accepted on dinner tables. Children and grown-ups, equally, scrunch their face in disgust when they find it lurking its way to their plate. If you’re a picky eater, this is your worst enemy, if you’re a hearty eater, again, this is your worst enemy. Sorry, Broccoli, it is not possible to have it all. The only reason we succumb to the persistent wails of our parents to ingest this mean-green vegetable is because it is healthy. And there is one question that I’ve been wanting to ask, so on behalf of the entire food-consuming population, why does everything that is healthy taste so unpleasant? But there is one thing to boast about the vegetable, its seemingly endless list of health benefits. So apart from having a high vitamin C content, it also has anti-cancerous properties which will help you keep the deadly disease at bay. Don’t take its impressive attributes for granted and eat that vegetable with a smile.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Take it from me, this one is delicious. The dish is super easy to prepare and tastes so good, any person with a disinclination to this particular vegetable will be quick to agree. And the taste of cheese towers over the horrid taste of this tree-like vegetable, which is indisputably a good thing, isn’t it?
