Broccoli

As an environmental scientist, I am always trying to highlight sustainable ingredients. Broccoli, when sourced locally and in season, is considered a sustainable crop.

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable. Like other vegetables in this category, they naturally produce insect-deterring plant compounds, meaning they do not require many pesticides to thrive.

They also have a relatively low water footprint.

Check when broccoli is in season in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.

Broccoli is not only delicious on its own, but it’s also awesome in soups and snacks! Find all our favorite broccoli recipes here.
