Question: Can you eat Broccoli Leaves?

April 2, 2012
I am about to harvest Broccoli from my garden for the first time. The stems are good eats, how about all those gorgeous leaves?? I will add them to my compost bin otherwise.

I have eaten the smaller, more tender leaves, but not the larger ones. My assumption is that they are edible, but may be tough and require more cooking. Give it a try and let us know how they turn out! I'm curious :)
