    Facts about Broccoli

    Did You Know?

    The way you cook broccoli can impact its nutrient content and health benefits. Boiling can leach up to 90% of broccoli’s nutrients, while steaming, roasting, stir-frying, and microwaving tends to preserve the nutrients.

    How to Choose:

    When it comes to broccoli, size doesn’t matter – big or small florets will taste equally delicious. Choose broccoli without wilted stems and avoid heads with any yellow open buds. You want stems that are firm and fresh and buds that are dark green.

    Storing Wisdom:

    To keep your broccoli fresh and crisp, store it in the vegetable crisper section of your refrigerator, unwashed and in a perforated bag. Try one of the recipes listed here within a few days of bringing the broccoli home.
