Broccoli of Torbole – Slow Food Presidium

Son of the wind, a jewel of green deliciousness cultivated for centuries and suitable to all the food preparations. 

The green broccoli from Torbole grows in the cold season thanks to the Garda Trentino winds: the Ora and the Pelèr, that mitigates the icy streams and make the climate mild in this strip of land. In this way, the green broccoli can get those organoleptic properties which are essential for our health. 

You can eat everything of this precious excellence, nothing is left behind. The leaves are wonderfully rich in mineral salts and iron, and taste delicious if seasoned with a bit of POD Garda Trentino extra virgin olive oil, but also as the main ingredient of a tasty traditional dish like the strangolapreti. 

And the flower? The central part of the green broccoli from Torbole is a wonderful light-yellow core with a sweet and delicate flavour. 

Don’t miss the chance to try this tasty recipe and discover the “son of the wind”… the Garda Trentino taste is guaranteed!
