(ahy brok-uh-lee) n. informal 1. Someone or something that is visually unattractive or hurtful to look at. Antonym of Eye Candy.
First used on the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother by Barney Stinson to describe Marshall Eriksen's homely assistant.
Barney: So, who's the eye broccoli?
Marshall: Hey, that's Iris, my new assistant. And yes, she is a little plain, but I'm married, so that's good.
This expression was first used on How I Met Your Mother by Barney to describe Marshall's secretary. It is a variation on the classic eye candy expression and since broccoli is one the most unfavorable and unliked foods it is the antithesis of candy, therefore a hot babe would be eye candy while a very ugly or fat girl would be eye broccoli.
