Broccoli, Violet Queen and Cauliflower
This is what we use
Broccoli Is Green Cauliflower
The first time I heard of Broccoli was when I was about 12 years old and watching News of The World on DD. It was the only channel we got and was produced by a company called NDTV.
The person in the news was George Bush Sr. He was refusing to meet a group of Broccoli Farmers as he said he hated the vegetable.
That got me wondering about what Broccoli was. I asked my Mom and she answered, "Broccoli is green Cauliflower."
That statement is what always comes to my mind when I see it on the super market shelves now. It is still an exotic vegetable for us Indians and not so easy to come by.
Initially my husband had a few reservations about eating it, but as I kept giving him stranger and more unusual vegetables, he was happy to eat Broccoli.
And once I even found a Violet Queen which for your information is not Broccoli but a variety of Cauliflower. I found that hard to believe but its true.
Given here is one of the simplest dishes you can make with Broccoli and Cheese.
