It is important to know that broccoli can be prepared in many ways, since it is a very versatile food
Keep in mind that a broccoli is made up of different florets (the small “bushes” that compose it) and the stem, it is recommended to separate them since the cooking time is different.
Boiled: cut the piece separating each of the florets from the broccoli stem. Place them in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes, no more, in this way you will make them “al dente”.
Baked: cut into strips to taste, we recommend not very thin, broccoli, put on a tray suitable for the oven and a splash of EVOO and salt. Preheat the oven to 220º 10 minutes before putting it in and leave it at a medium temperature for 20 minutes.
In the microwave: cut the florets and the stem into slices, with a jet of EVOO and salt to taste, cook at maximum power for 5 minutes.
Raw in salads: cut to taste and season, and voila! It is delicious and maintains all its nutrients.
Fried: in a pan cut into sheets to taste and with oil, ready in 5 minutes!
