Finally purple sprouting broccoli and Spring supper is served.

My 6 year old daughter has waited for 50 weeks and finally the day has come! She can fill her little face with Purple Sprouting Broccoli. Funny how a 6 year old can get so excited about eating vegetables, but she does.

It’s one of our favourite meals for two reasons, one it’s simple and tastes lovely and two it means spring is finally here!

Quick and easy Spring Supper.

Purple sprouting broccoli
Curly kale smallest leaves are the best
Chard
Fresh oregano
Garlic
Olive oil
Pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
Smoked salmon fillet, but it works wonderfully as a vegetarian dish too!

Cook the pasta, gently wilt the veg in a frying pan with olive oil, add the herbs and garlic at the end, toss pasta into the pan and serve, easy!

And not one drop of chemical was used making these vegetables grow, honestly you simply don’t need them! A tiny bit of effort is needed with hoeing and watering and you can feed your family and yourself vegetables which aren’t laced in filth!

The time is now – Go and plant a seed, it’s easy!

  1. I tried to grow the early purple sprouting broccoli where I live and it did not work out well. We really didn’t get a winter this year and so the plant grew MASSIVE, but no broccoli. 😦 Glad to see that it worked out for someone!

    • When did you plant them? Give them a bit more time they could still sprout!

      • I planted back in October. The biggest one was three feet tall and more of a shrubbery than a broccoli plant. Unfortunately it had to come out to make room for the tomatoes, otherwise I am not going to get any tomatoes… and that is unacceptable. 🙂 The chickens did enjoy it.

  2. Good, colorful food! Looks great. I’ll have to remember this combo or something like it when the garden starts to produce.

  3. Looks yummy – unfortunately our Purple Sprouting Broccoli was decimated by (?) slugs / pigeons this year. Roll on the new planting season ! 🙂
