Q&A session: Commonly asked questions about the highly-nutritious broccoli?
Broccoli is a truly underrated food item as it has an abundance of nutritious value with very few negatives. Here are some of the common questions I’ve come across when talking to my clients about broccoli.
The nutrients that broccoli gives are - Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Fiber, Folate, and Potassium.
Cooking methods often impact the nutritious content and health benefits of broccoli. In fact, boiling it can decrease the content of valuable nutrients up to 90%. Roasting, steaming, microwaving, and stir-frying are the better options as these will preserve the nutrients.
You can try roasting the broccoli. Place it on a metal sheet lined with aluminum foil before spraying with cooking spray. Now, sprinkle a pinch of salt and top it off with Parmesan cheese. Roast it for 15 minutes at 450 degrees to get a delicious meal your kid will absolutely love.
To keep your broccoli crisp and fresh, try to store it in a vegetable crisper, unwashed in a perforated bag, and use it within a few days.
