One of the easiest vegetables to grow and prepare.
Super-nutritious broccoli is one of the most versatile veggies. Puree steamed broccoli with milk and cheese for a creamy broccoli soup, eat it raw with dips, use it in chicken divan and other casseroles, or steam it and sprinkle with sharp cheddar cheese. Or toss florets with olive oil and salt and roast in a hot oven. Cool-season broccoli is easy to grow; start seeds indoors for an even earlier harvest. Sow a second crop in late summer for a fall harvest.
