I eat either cauliflower and broccoli both raw and cooked. I do have
distinct preferences, though. I prefer cauliflower raw--it is one of my
favorite snacks just to munch on (without any dip), and I often chop it up
small for salads. I prefer broccoli cooked, even though I will also munch on
that raw and put it on salads. The difference, to me, is that broccoli has a
strong taste when raw that is a bit unpleasant (but not unpalatable). By
contrast, I have *never* learned to like Brussels sprouts, no matter how
they are prepared. They have a strong "metallic" taste to me.
I like broccoli cooked or raw. When fixing it raw in salads I like to
nuke it for a few seconds until the surface is shiny. This takes away
the "grass" taste that I think the raw stuph has.
