UN stinking broccoli

When you make broccoli, it really smells up the joint, doesn't it?  I almost always use fresh broccoli crowns and steam them.
Well, I don't have to tell you that the waft of broccoli is not pleasant.

All you need is one or two pieces of bread, any kind will do.  You can use the ends or heels of the loaf if you want.

Whether you boil or steam or microwave (which I don't recommend because it burns the broccoli), place the bread on top of the broccoli while it cooks.

The bread absorbs with odor.  When done, toss bread away, unless you want two soggy pieces of bread that smell like broccoli for a sandwich.

  1. Oh what a great tip. Never heard of that one.
    I hate the whole house smelling like broccoli-if it doesn't smell good whos going to eat it?
    Will try this soon.
