Also known as sweet stem broccoli. These young broccoli off-shoots are packed with crunchy flavour and are full of goodness. They are quick to cook and prepare. The entire floret and stem is edible. For Asian meals, steam or quickly boil as you would broccoli and serve drizzled with a little oyster sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Bellaverde is also great cut up into stir-fries. Alternatively, try it in a salad. Blanche and cool and add fresh herbs, orange zest, roasted pumpkin seeds and a vinaigrette. Readily available in vegetable stores all year round.
