What is Broccoli?
Broccoli is a member of the brassica family, like cauliflower and cabbage. The part of the plant that is eaten is actually an undeveloped flower head with many tiny flower buds crowded onto it. When left to grow, the heads turn a bright yellow. Broccoli with yellow buds should be avoided, as this is a clear indication that the broccoli is old.more from Wikibooks

- Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
