Culinary Tips

  • eat raw, steam 8~15 minutes, blanch 4~8 minutes, roast 20~25minutes
  • Steam or blanch broccoli before sautéing or stir-frying.
  • The stalks and stems of the broccoli are edible, too. They cook in the same amount of time if you peel the outer skin. Insert a paring knife blade under the skin at the base and pull up. The skin pulls off easily, breaking off at the buds. Cut stalks into thick julienne strips or diagonal slices for soups or sautés
