A Hands-On Approach to Eating Broccoli

I'm a firm advocate of enjoying food. Of focusing attention on one thing at a time. Of getting my hands doughy, buttery, or salty.

And this is how I believe broccoli should be eaten:

Doused in olive oil and grilled; sprinkled with salt; and eaten (like miniature trees) with your hands.

In fact, if I had a restaurant, I'd serve broccoli this way all the time. Maybe I'd even plan menus so you got to play marauding giant for the whole meal ... How fun would that be?

In the meantime, try one of these recipes, courtesy of other Food Network Summer Fest contributers:
and eat with your hands.

That is the perfect way to eat broccoli! My kids love it too with olive oil and garlic.

That's one way of eating broccoli I guess. Personally, I'd prefer to get check recipe books and get fancy with it.
