               It’s very recently that I’ve started to eat broccoli and I’m a fan. Why I haven’t tried this for these many years. No answer. I had a very bad habit of rejecting certain foods even before tasting it and I regret for that. Now when my kids do the same thing, I feel so bad. I wish I could change this habit of their’s at the earliest. Coming back to broccoli, i try to add this to almost all my dishes 🙂 The word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of ‘broccolo’, which means “the flowering crest of a cabbage”, and is the diminutive form of brocco, meaning “small nail” or “sprout”. Broccoli resembles cauliflower, which is a different cultivar group of the same species.
