Confession: I hated these things until I was about 30 years old. They look like eyeballs, and I just couldn’t wrap my brain around eating them (though I did try). They were (that’s right, past tense!) one of VERY few veggies I dislike – joining broccoli rabe and asparagus (I have also come around on Asparagus, but not broccoli rabe — too bitter!).
True to form, my foodie husband managed to find a preparation I actually enjoy, and actually go back for seconds of! He roasts them with some olive oil, and adds in some bacon for texture (and okay fine, a little taste!) and it works perfectly! We have also had them without the bacon and I still enjoy them!
Their glucosinolate content helps us battle cancer and detoxes our body — moreso than any other vegetable!
