In my family, when my brothers and I were kids, we were allowed to pick a single food—which of course became a single veggie—that we could choose to skip when it was served. For me, my get-out-of-jail-free-food was broccoli. It was bitter, it was hard to chew when not cooked and ickily mushy when cooked, and generally disgusting, in my nine-year-old eyes. What was there to like?

Fast-forward 20 years and broccoli and I do get along a little better, in that I’ll actually eat it by choice—sometimes. Still, it’s definitely not my favorite, so when I do eat broccoli, I’m pretty picky about how it’s prepared (read: it should be smothered in something unequivocally delicious, like a salty-spicy sauce or a heavy dose of cheese).
