Trying to use up veg for dinner (no kids) the broccoli in the fridge has started to go yellow round it's tips/bobbly bits. I am v partial to broccoli but am I right in thinking a) this will now have zero nutritional content and b) will taste a bit crap. Jury's out.

Hard to tell without a pic. I'm normally fairly meh about these things and hate waste but it all depends HOW yellow.

All the nut;ritional content doesnt; just disappear be;cause its a bit wrinkly! Just eat it;;;;;;;;;;;;;.

Also it will most likely have SOME nutritional content and taste-wise it depends what you're doing with it. Covered in a nice thick cheesy sauce would I imagine be lots better than on its own on the side of the plate.

I buy all the veg I can frozen, because even after a day, the nutritional content drops.

It still bulks a meal out and makes you feel full, though.

You're right. Will cook and if it looks mingling just won't eat.

No cheese sauce sadly - side to salmon, already have green beans

Not much it doesn't. Depends on the veg.

Got any chilli or garlic to cook it with? Might help.

It still has soluble fibre & so is worth eating.
