Broccoli are among the most healthy vegetables. Apart from being extremely tasty, they are also quite dietary, which makes them an integral part of a healthy diet. Broccoli is easy to clean and needs a very short culinary treatment that even novice cooks can handle.
Broccoli should be cooked very briefly to retain its appetizing green color. It is recommended to boil the cleaned and chopped broccoli for no more than 3-4 minutes, after which they are immediately placed in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
You can quickly and easily cook broccoli by steaming them or you can cook them in the microwave. In order to steam broccoli, you will need a steamer or a suitable wire rack on which you can arrange the broccoli. The process takes about 4-5 minutes, after which you can easily prepare a Sicilian broccoli salad or breaded broccoli.
To cook broccoli in the microwave, you need a suitable dish with a lid. Arrange the chopped vegetables, add a little water and if desired, add some butter. Cover them with a lid and turn on the microwave for 3-5 minutes at full power (900 w).
