Broccoli is Stinky

The secret to cooking for kids is hiding broccoli.  Look, nobody likes broccoli.  I don’t like it, you don’t like it, your kids don’t like it.  Now I know that there are those of you out there who are thinkin’ to yourself, “Oh no, I like broccoli fine.”

Stop it.

Just stop it.

Broccoli is a tolerable vehicle for other things, like nacho cheese or butter, but it is not good.  There is always something better than broccoli to carry your cheese or butter.  For example, chips and lobster.  When you go to a ball game they sell tortilla chips with cheese not broccoli with cheese and if you were given the option between the two the stadium concession stands would be left with mountains of these seedy green things.

That being said;  broccoli is unbelievably healthy:  Broccoli’s noteworthy nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin A (mostly as beta-carotene), folic acid, calcium, and fiber.  As well it’s part of the cruciferous family and might help with not gettin the big C.  So of course it’s good for you and you should be cramming trees of this stuff down your little ones’ gullets.  Well I don’t know about your little people, but for mine anything green is about as popular as leprosy.  So here’s a little recipe that we use at our house all the time. It’s got a truckload of the green stuff but you can’t see it or taste it. It’s recipe number 1 in our recipe section. ENJOY !!!!!
