Some people believe that cooking broccoli is boring. Broccoli is juicy, firm and fresh. It needs to be rightly cooked. When you boil broccoli in boiled water, its cells break down faster. When you have less time, cut the broccoli, put some olive oil and salt on it and put it in the oven. Broccoli florets can also be grilled, baked or sauteed. When you cook broccoli, make sure that you give away steam and let the florets absorb flavor and not get pulpy.
