Steamed broccoli is one of the best remedies I know. It is healthy, clean, rich in vitamin C, proteins (45% of calories in broccoli are proteins) and fiber.
How to steam broccoli so that it comes out perfectly every time?
The most important thing you need to know about steamed broccoli is that if you are cooking it more than 7 minutes, you risk to overcook it.
After 7 minutes, the broccoli will turn into olive green color, instead of that green, vibrant green we like.
So, to make sure the broccoli is correctly cooked, here are some tips:
Tip 1: before adding broccoli to the steam cooker, make sure the water starts to boil.
Tip 2: Set the timer for only 5 to 6 minutes. The smaller florets may only need 5 minutes to cook, and bigger florets need 6. I recommend you to start with 5 and then test the broccoli with a fork to see if it is cooked through.
