2. Steaming Broccoli

Steaming broccoli is one of the easiest ways to cook it, and the method retains most of the vegetable's nutrients. For a shortcut, purchase microwave-in-bag broccoli from the grocery store. Or, use a steamer on the stove pot. Put no more than an inch of water in the bottom of your saucepan and place the steamer inside, adjusting it to fit the pan. Add the broccoli. Cover the pot and bring water to a boil. Then, allow it to simmer as the broccoli steams. It can take anywhere from five to 15 minutes to cook broccoli this way. Check for doneness by piercing broccoli with a fork. Top off the results of this healthy method with chimichurri or cheese sauce.
