Broccoli
Townsville's Favourite

Broccoli

This green vegetable is a true powerhouse of flavour and nutrition. With a crisp texture and a slightly sweet, earthy taste, our broccoli is grown in rich soil and harvested at its peak to ensure maximum freshness. You can get creative and enjoy broccoli in a variety of dishes! You can steam it for a simple side, toss it into stir-fries, or blend it into a creamy soup. For a quick and tasty recipe, try roasting broccoli with a sprinkle of garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Selecting the freshest broccoli at the grocery store is easy when you know what to look for. Choose broccoli with firm, tight florets that are dark green or even tinged with purple. The stalks should be firm, not soft or rubbery. Avoid any broccoli with yellowing florets, as this indicates it is past its prime. A fresh broccoli bunch will feel heavy for its size and have a pleasant, earthy smell. Smaller florets tend to be more tender and cook evenly​.

Broccoli is incredibly versatile and can be prepared in countless delicious ways. Steam broccoli to preserve its nutrients and enjoy it with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Roast it in the oven with a bit of parmesan cheese for a savoury twist. You can also add it to pasta dishes, casseroles, or even enjoy it raw in salads for a refreshing crunch. For a healthy snack, try dipping raw broccoli florets in hummus or a yoghurt-based dip​.
