Broccoli has been a polarizing figure in politics for some time now. George Bush Senior reviled him in the 90's. Critics of the current American health care reform legislation paint scenes of force-feeding broccoli to a nation. Love him (roasted with carrots, garlic and herbs) or hate him (in broccoli burgers), Broccoli is here and will not disappear!
P.S. As a site devoted to underrepresented foods, our focus on the underrepresented has been slipping. Last week we made a cute Father's Day pun with probably one of the least underrepresented foods. Today's featured food currently suffers from a case of overexposure of the political kind, but we couldn't resist throwing our hat into the ring.
