A few months ago, a sweet Peruvian couple opened a vegetable store three block from here. The prices are extremely competitive, the assortment has been improving tremendously, and sometimes they care odd vegetables and fruits that are familiar to them, but quite a rarity here in Buenos Aires.
Recently, I have been purchasing this kind of wild broccoli 🥦 whose loca name is unknown to me. There is no sign in the vegetable shop and my feeble attempt to understand the name being said by the Peruvians has been unsuccessful. Do you know what is the name?
I love it: I cut the sprouts, boil them and eat them with pasta.
I cut the leaves and eat them like spinach leaves. The coarser part of the leave (the stem), I dice it and put it in soups.
It is sold in a bouquet, with the leaves folded to reveal the sprout. In the last picture I am showing the full length.
