Are Those Broccoli Leaves Edible?

Call me crazy, but I just found out that the broccoli plant has these huge leaves! Why did I never know that before? I’ve never seen them at the grocery store or even at my local farmer’s market. So who’s eating all these broccoli leaves?

Well, if you happen to be lucky enough to come across some broccoli leaves, this entertaining video will show you how to cook them. They’re kind of like a cross between collard and mustard leaves.

Or use those large, beautifully green leaves in a protein smoothie for a nice boost to your day.
