We can all agree that broccoli is the healthiest vegetable, this plant’s health benefits are numerous, but do you really know how to prepare them properly, which parts are edible, what kind of benefits they possess? In this article you will get the answers that you need.
Most of us use only broccoli’s flower because it contains an abundance of vitamins E, A and C, antioxidants, magnesium and calcium.
But what about this plant’s stalk and leaves? Are they edible or not? Some of you might be surprised, but the answer is yes, they are edible. Maybe you did not know, but only 30 grams of broccoli leaves, which you probably throw away, contain 90% of the required daily doses of vitamin A, which is very important for improving the sight and immune system. 43% of the required daily doses of vitamin C is in those 30 grams of leaves. When it comes to preventing cancer, this vitamin helps. Try and cook the leaves together with the flower.
You probably make the same mistake with the stalks. Broccoli stalks probably contains more fiber than this plant’s flower and has a sweet – like taste. Start cooking the stalks before the rest of the vegetables, since they need more cooking.
You can eat every single part of broccoli and is on the top on the list of natural healing plants.
