Simple Cooked Broccoli
Jump to recipe
Broccoli is a protein, vitamin and mineral rich super vegetable. It has many health benefits. Broccoli supports bone health, immune system, eye health, heart health, nervous system, aids in detoxification of the body, benefits the skin, and is anti-inflammatory according to some sources.
There are many ways of cooking broccoli. I have tried several methods, including oven cooking, steaming and others but I always come back to this method again. My little ones love eating broccoli when I use this simple method of cooking.
- Filtered Water (enough to cover the broccoli florets)
- Sea Salt
- Grass-fed Butter
- Bring the water to a boil.
- Add sea salt to the boiling water.
- Separate the broccoli head into smaller sized florets.
- Drop the florets to the boiling water.
- When the water starts boiling again, reduce the fire to medium-low.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes.
- Put some butter chunks to the plate.
- Strain the broccoli florets and try one to check the taste. Sprinkle some sea salt if not enough (optional).
- Transfer the florets to the plate with butter.
- Hot broccoli will melt the butter.
- The result: bright green broccoli, soft, not overcooked and tasty!
