Broccoli - 500g
Fresh broccoli – approximate weight – 500g
Its best to trim any woody stem ends or tough leaves with a knife. Divide into small, individual florets, each with a short stem and diagonally slice the thicker stems. Broccoli boils or steams in 3-6 minutes, depending on the size of floret. In stir-fries, cook it for a couple of minutes, until tender.
To cook, drizzle with olive oil or melted butter or a handful of grated parmesan; add to a cheesy pasta bake; stir-fry in groundnut oil with chopped garlic and dry fried cashews, adding a drizzle of sesame oil to the pan just before cooking ends.
