Don’t boil – steam

Costa Levante News - - WINE AND DINE -

Boil­ing cer­tain veg­eta­bles in­stead of steam­ing loses many of their vi­ta­mins, min­er­als and pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties.

Bro­coli is one such veg and bub­bling in a pot of water washes away much of the good­ness – left be­hind in the green water.

Eat­ing it raw is one of the best ways to ben­e­fit from its nu­tri­tional po­ten­tial. Orig­i­nat­ing in Italy, it was bought over to Bri­tain in the 1720’s and over 22 mil­lion tons is pro­duced world­wide ev­ery year with China now the world’s largest pro­ducer, with over 8 mil­lion tons a year.

Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey, broc- coli is the sixth most com­monly mis­spelt word in English.
