  • Broccoli can be eaten raw or cooked and is mild enough to be paired with numerous flavors and textures. be incorporated into salads, added to a veggie platter, or enjoyed dipped in various dipping sauces and dressings. Saute carrots, onions, and celery in a pot, add chopped broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and vegetable stock then cook until softened and puree into soup.

  • Consume fresh broccoli as soon as you can as it will not keep long. To store, mist the unwashed heads, wrap loosely in damp paper towels, and refrigerate. Use within 2 to 3 days. Do not store broccoli in a sealed container or plastic bag.
