Enjoy Broccoli at its Best!
Elaine Magee, MPH, RD posted:
It's that time before the spring produce starts popping up in your supermarket or produce market...where you might be getting a little tired of the same old same old veggies and fruits.

In case you haven't enjoyed some broccoli lately, this nutrient-packed dark green veggie is usually available this time of year.

How to Enjoy Broccoli At Its Best:

* When buying fresh broccoli, look for firm florets with a purple, dark green or bluish hue onthe top (they are likely to contain more beta-carotene and vitamin C than florets with lighter green tops.

* Broccoli that's tinged with yellow or is limp and bendable is too old; I wouldn't recommend buying it. Instead pick up some broccoli from the frozen section.

* Chopped broccoli makes a great addition to soups, stews, and casseroles.

* Cook broccoli until it's bright green and tender, but take care not to overcook it--broccoli can produce a strong sulfur odor and become quite unappealing.

I love broccoli as a side dish to any pasta entree!

What's your favorite way to enjoy broccoli?
