Yeahhhh I like it when we find things in common Alix! I'm sorry to hear that broccoli can give you migaines. Research has shown that migraines can (for some people) be triggered (or made worse) by certain foods, especially those that are high in a chemical called "tyramine" (and some of the other "amine" chemicals like histamine, as well as tannins). I'm not sure of the level of tyramine in broccoli...but I know that spinach has a high level of histamine.

(coming around to Kim's defence...) well that thread had a special request for someone on special diet... now here is a no holds barred open discussion on our favourite vegetable!!

So we can discuss about it much more in wider range.. don't worry!!

Personally I love baking them covered with bechamelle with a splash of nutmeg and white pepper, chopped variety of cheeses (fontina, gorgonzola, edam, gouda etc..) and chopped ham or bacon, that is our favourite.

And of course they are great stir fried and tossed into pasta, different grains or cereals...

I love broccoli just about any way you can think of. Steamed with some salt and pepper is one of my favorites though.

I don't have a bbq...but I've been wondering for a while how broccoli done simply like this (perhaps with some garlic) would taste if you wrapped it in foil with a little evoo and did it on the bbq? Has anyone ever tried bbqing broccoli?

Hmmm bbq and broccoli? j/k piccolina!
When you say bbq around Texas, it means bbq sauce on some meat
I know what you meant though.
the only thing other than meat that I have put on the grill is carrots, potatoes, cabbage and onions.

Mmmmmmm bbq sauce (red based for me please) and broccoli....That thought alone almost makes me want to change my supper plans for tonight and whip up a broccoli & bbq chicken salad (lol, too bad I'm out of broccol though).

How does cabbage taste on the grill? I can't recall having tried that one
