Broccoli, cauliflower, both or none?

Asked by CelestialIncognito (336points) 1 month ago

I have for all my adult life loved the taste of broccoli. I learned at an early age that cauliflower smelled like farts and could never get passed the gas to enjoy it. Recently, cauliflower is tasting pretty good! What is your experience?

I have always loved both, a slight preference for cauliflower. I think Brussels sprouts are pretty wonderful, too.

I developed a taste for broccoli when I was pregnant. Cauliflower came later but I love them both.

I like them both, especially mixed together and topped with sea salt.

Put cheese sauce on either of them and I’m in!

Both, with cheese sauce.

They’re good raw, dipped on Ranch, too.

I’m with @janbb – cheese makes them edible.

Both are good for dipping in Onion Dip or hummus or something similar.

Dip in chocolate!
I don’t like either.

Here is something that may surprise you. What do the following have in common: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale and kohlrabi. They are all variants of the same species They kind of taste similar to me, with a need for cheese sauce to make them palatable.

As a kid I hated broccoli and loved pickled cauliflower. Now I like cauliflower and beef and broccoli. I like both with veggie dip.
I will not eat multi-coloured broccoli. I don’t know if broccoli is safe to eat when multi-coloured.

I like broccoli and I don’t like cauliflower. My husband is exactly the opposite.

I like ‘em both. Cauliflower took a while because my mother only served it with a strong cheddar cheese sauce that I could not abide.

I now like cauliflower’s versatility, including using it as faux rice and also as a crust substitute.

I don’t care for either; however, I can now eat broccoli IF I need to!!! I never cook it; but if I come to your home for dinner, I can eat the broccoli without choking, I would do my best with the cauliflower, but it would be a slow go getting it down.

If you come to my house for dinner you will not be expected to eat anything you don’t want to. I didn’t do that to my kids and I certainly won’t do it to my guests.

I was raised by parents who taught me that if it’s what you serve, it is my responsibility to eat it & say thank you for preparing my meal. So, if it’s on your table, I will be respectful & eat what you serve. That is unless it’s liver & I just cannot swallow liver.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

I was taught to say thank you, but there was no pressure to choke down food I didn’t like. I guess I was lucky.

Lol I’m torn between the two, and loved them both as a kid. I like mine to be steamed with I bit of butter and a dash of seasoning salt.
