    This is so tough…my two favorite vegetables. I’d have to say Arugula pleases more people, at least in America.

    ewww ewwww… can’t stand arugula (“rocket”) OR brussels sprouts… how did my two least favorite vegetables advance this far?

      It’s the crazy Leafy region. We’re in Leafy hell with our CSA–apparently the drought in Texas killed a bunch of the crop, so our share was nothing but leafy vegetables this week, and likely to be the same next week.
