    Nice Matt, way to use those mind grapes to squeeze out a nice little solution! That being said I still don’t think I’de eat your cooking.

    Ummm, I’ve been doing this for a while. Isn’t it obvious? Saves dirtying another pot. And are you really trying to cook a head of broccoli without cutting it up? If you cut it into pieces first it cooks in 10 minutes tops.

    Following up on what Kara said above, your whole head of broccoli also appears to be frozen… maybe it’s just the picture, but if it is frozen, that would certainly take more time and energy to cook.

    This actually isn’t as eco-friendly as you think. It takes a certain amount of energy to boil plain water, it takes more energy to boil that water with noodles in it, just as it takes more energy to boil that same water with beans.

    Putting both noodles and beans in the same pot means that you are simply having to put more energy into that same pot to make the water boil.

    It’s basic science.
