Broccoli

Broccoli is an all time favorite among almost everyone. This vegetable is very versatile and the whole plant is edible. You can eat the leaves, the stem, and the head. The leaves are great to eat chopped up in stir fry. Broccoli is high in sulforophane which researchers are saying is a anti-cancer agent. Boiling can leach most of the nutrients to broccoli so try steaming, sauteing, or eating raw.

How To Store

Store in crisper drawer of the refrigerator unwashed. Wash before eating and try to eat within the first couple of days. You can also chop up the head and stems into florets, wash and dry, then store in the freezer. You can cook it straight from frozen.
