Abracadabra! We Made Your Greens Tastier Than Ever
I have always loved broccoli and that’s why it was such a shock to realize that my little one refused to even give it a try.
He is not particularly picky when it comes to food; we eat all kinds of veggies at our house and he really enjoys all of them. But for some reason broccoli has been a huge no-no to him, from day one. I think he was about 2 the first time I happened to serve this lovely veggie. He did not even taste it! He saw it on his plate and said “Mommy I don’t like it”!
Oh well, that’s how kids are sometimes I thought, and I figured I wouldn’t serve it for a while to see if he forgets about it over time. But no – his reaction was the same the next time, and every time after that. No matter what way I had prepared the broccoli. So I didn’t even think about it anymore – after all, he was eating all the other vegetables.
The other day I made myself this steamed broccoli with cheese sauce. I guess the aromas were irresistible because he wanted to taste it. And you know what? He ate a whole serving of this!
