I love all greens... except celery. (It's a horror story. You don't want to know about it.) But it wasn't always that way. When I was a kid, I caused many tense moments at the dinner table as I refused to eat my greens... sorry mum and dad. But now, I really adore all greens... and broccoli would have to be one of my favourites... and this would have to be one of my favourite ways to eat broccoli. Green Goodness - give it to me. (I think my eight-year-old-self would slap me right now.)
