sliced diced broccoliI love broccoli. For as long as I can remember. Well, the cooked kind at least. I have only recently started enjoying raw broccoli. It took me a little longer to come around to that. Honestly, I don’t know why broccoli has such a bad wrap. Do you? Perhaps it is the offensive odor that it gives off when cooked? You know, like dirty socks on a wet rainy day? Yea, I guess that isn’t so tasty sounding. But really, when cooked well, not overcooked it is a magnificent vegetable. I can’t tell you how elated I was when my husband finally came around to broccoli. Our whole relationship changed! Okay, I am exaggerating. But our menu options sure did open up! At any rate, it is broccoli season so I thought we should talk equivalents and yields for heads of broccoli. Keep in mind that head sizes vary but this is a rough estimate of what to expect from broccoli. sliced diced broccoli
