Giants eating trees like broccoli

I can't, for the life of me, remember the title of a book I loved as a child (1970s).  The only thing I really remember was that a giant (ogre, or some other sort of mystical creature) was talking about eating trees like his little human friend ate broccoli.  Some women on a mailing list I belong to suggested "The Friendly Giant" but it wasn't the right book.  I'm hoping someone can help me as I'm starting to believe I made this book up!  Thank you so much!!!!
