Broccoli

Broccoli looks very similar to a cauliflower bud but has a sweet earthy mild taste and can be enjoyed steamed, grilled or cooked and garnishing this with a drizzle of olive oil and grated parmesan cheese.

Texture
It has soft slippery spots on the florets and a thick stalk.
Flavour
Broccoli has a fresh tender-crisp flavour associated with it.
Selection
Look for a strong color, tight buds and healthy leaves on the stalk. The stems should be a lighter green than the buds and easy to pierce with a fingernail. Avoid stalks with yellowed or open bud clusters and stems that are hard and dry.
Storage
Broccoli must be stored unwashed in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in a plastic bag.
