A few months ago I wrote a post about BroccoLeaf, a revitalized organic super food by Foxy Produce. And I am so excited that I just found it in the grocery store! After purchasing it, I immediately went home to put it to the taste test. The results…
It is EXTREMELY bitter. The most bitter leafy green that I have ever tasted… but I knew that it was good for me so I proceeded to try to take away some of the bitterness.
- Juicing – A great product to juice, but to hide the bitterness you will need to use a few apples to balance the bitter/sweet taste.
- Chips – I made a batch of kale and broccoleaf chips in the oven. I was not able to tell the difference between the two, so that is a plus.
- Sautéed – I threw together the BroccoLeaf, a little butter, salt, pepper, garlic seasoning and the result was amazing! The bitter taste disappeared and I was left with a very pleasant side dish.
Overall, I will definitely be purchasing BroccoLeaf again, but you won’t find me eating it like a salad. Even though some of the nutrients might die off from the high heat sauté cooking, the end taste was worth it. If you come over for dinner you might find this new super food on your plate!
