Drink your broccoli?

喝西蘭花嗎?

That’s the idea behind the new, veggie-packed broccoli latte, which is taking over cafes in Melbourne, Australia.

這是新推出的素食西蘭花拿鐵計劃背後的想法,這個想法正在澳大利亞墨爾本的咖啡館中流行開來。

It began with a scientific experiment: In a recent effort to reduce food waste, Australian researchers pulverized ugly broccoli — which grocery stores would have otherwise tossed out — into an edible powder.

這個想法始於一項科學實驗:為了努力減少食物浪費,最近澳大利亞研究人員將雜貨店原本都會扔掉的醜陋的花椰菜粉碎成一種可食用的粉末。

“Research shows the average Australian is still not eating the recommended daily intake of vegetables a day, and options such as broccoli powder will help address this,” John Lloyd, the chief executive of the agency that developed the powder, explains in a press release .

開發這種粉末的該機構的首席執行官約翰.勞埃德在一份新聞稿中解釋道:“研究表明,澳大利亞人平均每日攝取的蔬菜量仍舊沒有達到推薦量,花椰菜粉之類的選擇將有助於解決這一問題。”

But the powder’s taste is so strong that it needs to be mixed with something even stronger — like coffee.

但這種粉末的味道太濃了,需要和味道更濃的東西混合在一起,比如咖啡。

So Lloyd’s team turned it over to Melbourne baristas, who have stirred it into lattes and other elixirs.

所以勞埃德的團隊把粉末交給了墨爾本的咖啡師,他們把它攪拌到拿鐵和其他的“好東西”裡。

Reviews were mixed, said Melbourne’s Peck Cafe owner Sam Peck to TheUrbanList.com.

墨爾本的派克咖啡館老闆山姆.派克接受TheUrbanList.com網站採訪時說,評論褒貶不一。

“The easiest way to describe the taste is to imagine taking a big bite out of a broccoli,” he said. “Now imagine it in liquid form.”

他說:“用最簡單的方式來形容它的味道就是想像吃了一大口西蘭花,現在把它想像成液態。”
