Broccoli is high in many nutrients, including fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron and potassium. It also contains more protein than most other vegetables. It can be enjoyed both raw and cooked. Recent research shows that gentle steaming provides the most health benefits.
Don’t overcook it. When cooked, broccoli should remain a little crisp.
