I prefer to have broccoli a little undercooked so it remains crisp and not all soft and mushy. You get more of the nutrients eating them this way, or raw even better.
Broccoli is considered a good source of nutrients. It is rich in vitamin C, carotenoids (vitamin A-like substances), fiber, calcium, and folate.
It is also a source of many substances called phytochemicals, a plant chemicals that may have anticancer properties. So better eat your broccoli!!!
