Broccoli in tomato sauce...that's a new one! These sound like wonderful recipes, and seeing as how broccoli is probably my number one favorite vegetable of all times, I'm definitely going to have to try this! I usually just steam it with a bit of garlic and ginger, and it's the best on a bed of rice!

There are people who really dislike the taste of the broccoli but I find it quite delicious, it?s one of the healthiest vegetables of the world and can be prepared in many ways, so you must find a way you like and try to include it very often. I include broccoli in rice and with almost every salad I prepare, and it is just delicious!
