How to Steam Fresh Broccoli

Steaming is a cooking method that has been around for a while. It’s easy to do and helps to preserve the nutrients that can be lost in cooking water when vegetables are boiled. So, if you don’t have a steamer basket, they’re an inexpensive tool that is well worth adding to your kitchen accessories.

In the video below, I demonstrate how to simply steam fresh broccoli. This method can be used if you just want some lightly cooked broccoli to enjoy with your meal, add to a cold or warm salad, or prepare the vegetable for freezing or dehydrating. Enjoy!

I hope this helps!
