BROCCOLI TIPS TIPS

Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables, the tops for salads, or in stir fries like beef broccoli, or in soups. Broccoli has a lot of good nutritional properties like Vitamins A, C, B-6, D, B-12, as well as Iron and Magnesium. And that's raw not cooked. But if you were to just follow some of my advice on broccoli to retain most of its nutrients, here is what you do.

In its raw state of being, broccoli and most cruciferous plants will retain all of its nutrients, organic would be your best bet for full healthy eats. But here is what you do if you are going to use broccoli in a cooked dish.

Stir Fries & Soups

     The best way to use broccoli and retain a lot of its nutritional value is to blanch the broccoli tops or tips quickly in hot water. Just boil the water really hot, and quickly add the broccoli in the boiling water for about 20 seconds and remove it. Slice it thin before you add it into your stir fry. Add it in last so all you will be doing is tossing the broccoli in the pan or wok just to incorporate it. Or slice it thin in its raw state, and garnish your stir fries. Or add it in last into soups.
