Broccoli has a fresh flavour that is as bright and green as it’s colouring. It is a very versatile vegetable, offering both stalks and florets that can be stir-fried, baked, steamed, boiled, added to casseroles or eaten fresh. It is packed with nutrients and, when cooked just right, will add fresh flavour and delicious texture to any meal.
Choose brightly coloured, deep green broccoli with close-packed, solid heads. Avoid heads that have yellow to brown tinges. Broccoli should be stored in a plastic bag in the fridge and will last for three to four days.
Serving Suggestion: Cut broccoli into florets and place in a dish of cold water to flush out debris. Drain and rinse. Lightly steam the broccoli until it is bright green and still firm. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli or it will become mushy and tasteless. Once steamed, toss broccoli with olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and pasta. Garnish with a sprinkle of red chili flakes and sea salt.
