I love veggies, and among my favorite is broccolini. Broccolini is not baby broccoli, instead it is a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale created back in the 1990’s. This is NOT some genetic engineering product. It is a product of slow cross pollination efforts – that’s what all hybrid plants are.
My family loves the winter, but living in the Northeast sometimes means cold and occasionally bone chilling temperatures. My husband works outside nearly all day. When he arrives home, thoroughly chilled to the core, there is little that hits the spot better than a hearty, piping hot bowl of soup.
