Broccoli is a nutrient dense, antioxidant-packed, cruciferous vegetable. It is packed with vitamins A, C, and E and fiber.
Shopping and Storage Tips:
- Choose broccoli heads with tight, green florets and firm stalks. Avoid broccoli with dry or browning stem ends or yellowing florets.
- Store broccoli in your fridge’s vegetable drawer in an open plastic bag.
- If bought very fresh (i.e. from The Farm) broccoli will keep up to 10 days.
