In The Bag: Purple Sprouting Broccoli

March 31st, 2008

This is a round-up of recipes submitted for our monthly seasonal food blogging event “In The Bag”. This month we chose Purple Sprouting Broccoli as the ingredient - and I’m really impressed with everyone’s ideas for this great vegetable.

Geeky fact of the day is that the purple colour on the head of the plant comes from tiny flower buds. Its short season lasts only from mid February to mid April, so tuck in and enjoy some while it lasts!

  • Julia from “A Slice of Cherry Pie” is the co-host of our In The Bag seasonal food blogging event (and you can catch April’s edition over there). She has submitted the unusual combination of purple sprouting brocolli with mint. This is another example of how a vegetable can be enjoyed without too much playing.
