Broccoli
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, collards, kale and kohlrabi are all from the Brassicaceae family. Broccoli would probably be the most popular family member. It has green stalks and flowering buds that form a head - looking like a pretty, miniature green tree.
Category: Vegetable
In Season: all year
To Buy:
Buy unpackaged broccoli to ensure that it has a clean fresh smell, buds that are formed close together and no yellowing tinges to it. Avoid thick stalks as they can be quite tough.
To Store:
Store in the crisper section of the fridge in plastic vegetable bags for a couple of days.
Tips & Tricks:
For tender sweet stalks, peel them and slice them into batons - delicious.
Cooking Tips:
To retain the most nutrients, cut the broccoli into small bite size florets and the stalks to a similar size and steam for approx 4 minutes until tender. Delicious served with a drizzle of olive oil and toasted almond slivers.
