President Obama (says he) loves broccoli

President Obama has at long last revealed his favorite food -- broccoli

At least, that's the on-message answer he gave a guest at the “Kids’ State Dinner” that first lady Michelle Obama organized to promote healthy eating.

Skeptics might note that the president is often photographed eating hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and other non-green non-vegetables. But his wife did tell Yahoo News in February that the Obamas are a "broccoli household," describing the brassica as a "unifier."

Anyway, it turns out Americans love (or at least eat a lot of) broccoli, even if Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and former president George H.W. Bush don't get it.

In conclusion, here are some recipes for broccoli.
