Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables because it is rich in vitamins, minerals, and secondary plant substances. They strengthen the immune system and bones and lower cholesterol levels. If you steam them instead of cooking them, most of the valuable substances remain in the vegetable.
Steaming is a very gentle cooking method, which benefits broccoli, romanesco, and cauliflower.
