Broccoli has become so popular in Turkey for a few years. It was one of the vegetables Turkish people weren’t aware of. In the first years when broccoli was seen at markets, people thought that it was very much like cauliflower, just the green version of it. Some people dared to try this new green cauliflower like vegetable and they found it tasteless. Very few people loved it at their first try. Then doctors and media worked together to persuade people to have especially broccoli salad to prevent many serious diseases like cancer and prostate. This campain still continues on social media tools. Today, Turkish people are aware of broccoli benefits, learning how it is healthy make people love it unlike the past when they first tried it and they are trying to find new ways to eat it. Having broccoli salad has become the most common way of enjoying this cute green flower. Doctors recommend not to waste the water in which you boil broccoli when making broccoli salad. You can use it in soup or you can even drink it as it is when cold. I generally add it to soup of that day or I put it in freezer to use it later.
