Broccoli is a great go-to ingredient. You can cook with the vibrant green florets, as well as the stems, and stalks (they're great sliced into thin coins). I love it grilled, blanched, pureed, sautéed - just about any way you can imagine. Broccoli is fast to prepare and cook, and a very nutritious member of the cruciferous vegetable family - thought to contain a powerful arsenal of anticancer compounds. Here are a few of my favorite broccoli recipes and preparations. Please enjoy!
