Broccoli

Broccoli

Source of omega-3-fatty acids

Direct contact

Broccoli is a popular vegetable, related to cauliflower but there are differences beyond colour. The still closed flower buds of broccoli are consumed as opposed to the origins of the flower buds (flower bud primordia) for cauliflower. Furthermore broccoli is smaller than cauliflower and it has a less tight structure. Broccoli consists of green flower buds with thick stems. The flavour is similar to that of cauliflower, but it is more refined and more spicy. Raw broccoli contains a lot of vitamin C and fibre and is the source of Omega 3 fatty acids.

Without the pronounced cabbage taste

Direct contact

Chinese cabbage originates from, where else, the north of China. Characteristic of this type of cabbage is that it, same as pak choi, lacks the typical cabbage flavour. The vegetable consists of a light-coloured, oblong crop, which is as big as a firm head lettuce of leaf cabbage. Chinese cabbage is grown both outside and under glass and is therefore available throughout the year. This vegetable is very suitable for stir-frying and wok dishes. In the oriental kitchen the eaves are often used as edible ‘packaging’ of small dishes and snacks. Healthier than dough and at least as tasty.
