How to use leftover cooked broccoli – recipe | Food

Will Kreznick

Brassicaceae such as broccoli, purple sprouting broccoli and romanesco, which are all nearing the end of their long winter season, contain a compound called sulforaphane that is believed to have myriad health benefits. According to NutritionFacts.org, “Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli can potentially prevent DNA damage and … activate defences against pathogens and pollutants.” To reap those nutritional benefits, however, it’s best to eat the whole plant, fresh or frozen, including its leaves and stalks. Peel and thinly slice the thickest stalks against the grain, then cook alongside the rest of the plant, or simply eat them as a crudite.
