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. They don’t if I use other methods of cooking for this wonderful super vegetable.
