How many times growing up did we hear those inevitable words…eat your vegetables? Why as kids did we push the offending cruciferous lumps around on our plates and refuse to even try them? Because they smelled funny and looked weird? To our young brains we had no idea these were some of the most important building blocks of a healthy body – though I still don’t enjoy broccoli.
There are hundreds of different vegetables, from normal to hybrid, so how can we not find something we like? Veggies come in all shapes, forms and colors and can be prepared in every way imaginable. Personally, the more butter or cheese sauce that is smothering them the better.
If you are bored with those everyday veggies, then take a look at some of the strangest vegetables that are being enjoyed even as you read this.
The Romanesco may look like a weird alien invader but it is actually a type of broccoli from Italy. It has cone-shaped florets in a brilliant green color. The taste is somewhat mild to sweet. Its closest veggie-cousin would be cauliflower.
