10 Nutritious Broccoli Recipes

Broccoli is a very exotic vegetable. It is similar to cauliflower, which is commonly found in every household. Broccoli actually comes under cabbage family. Its name is derived from “broccolo”, an Italian word which means flowering top of cabbage plant. According to experts, broccoli was first cultivated in Europe, 2000 years. It was spread to other countries by the Italians. It is one of the most nutritious vegetables. It is very exotic dish with crisp, dark green and solid florets. It has a long history that is well known.

During a state dinner, president Obama said that broccoli was his favourite vegetable. Broccoli ranks fifth in popularity around the world. Although, the 43rd president of United States, George Bush disagreed with this and banned broccoli from being served to him. He said that he didn’t like the vegetable.

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.
