I have a love/hate relationship with broccoli. I LOVE to eat it, and fortunately, my husband and my son do too. Although it looks good, this free broccoli crochet pattern is not for internal consumption. But for the real thing: raw with a bit of ranch or hummus, steamed with butter and salt, cooked into a casserole, as a pasta topping, as a salad with a creamy or vinaigrette dressing, grated, stir fried, in soup, in your eggs. The ways to eat it are endless!
But then… I end up eating too much and pay for it the next morning. It’s part of the cabbage family and has a bad rap when it comes to… eh hem… gas and bloating. That’s all I need to say about that. But, is the battle worth it? YES. And it makes an appearance once a week on our dinner table in some way, shape or form. So, when Benjamin requested broccoli to be added to his crochet toys, I was surprised that I hadn’t made a stalk for him yet!
So, finally, here it is – for him, and for you.
