ALL STAR VEGETABLE AT NORTH PARK
It just might be the World's Most Versatile Vegetable; eat it raw dipped in hummus from Baba Foods or in spicy chipotle Bitchin' Sauce, or sautee it in roasted red pepper pesto and serve over fresh pasta from Lisko Imports. Toss it in Chardonnay-Garlic Vinaigrette from Bistro Blends and roast it in the oven (makes a great side to roast chicken from DaLe Ranch.) Use it to top a Conchetta's pizza, or pick up farm fresh eggs from the R&L stand and make a frittata. Grab some Estero Gold from Taste Cheese and make an amazing gratin. There's no limit to what you could make with organic broccoli from JR or Suzie's Farm at the North Park Market today.
If you're old enough to remember Saturday Night Live when it was still funny, listen to this while you prep that broccoli: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR6y71x3tSY
