Once again (I've done this nearly every week this year blush) I've not used the broccoli quick enough and it's started to go yellow. Would it still be ok to eat and still taste ok?

I hardly ever throw food away but I just seem to have a huge problem with broccoli and I keep persevering! I might give up on it after this!

Quick! I'm in the middle of making a roast dinner! Help!!

just try cooking it -if it goes back to green (which it can do, from experience) it's fine, chomp away!

I wouldn't eat the yellow part as I think it's quite bitter but you can eat the stems.

It'll probably taste a bit gone off.

Thanks everyone. I definitely need to just stop buying it. Maybe I'll try the frozen stuff hmm As I recall it tends to be a bit rubbery though.

chuck it, or salvage te non yellow bits

I always do that with broccoli too, started buying the frozen stuff so I don't waste it
