How to Clean Broccoli

Dave Beaulieu September 2nd, 2011 1 comment

For many, broccoli is a love it or hate it vegetable.  I am not one of those people.  Some broccoli recipes I really like, others…let’s say I have a tough time with.  But regardless of the specific preparation, you always need to clean and prep it.  In this cooking video, I show you how to take a simple head of broccoli, and break it down into the florets, and the stems.  And show you how you can clean up those stems to make them as tender and great tasting as the florets.

How To Clean Broccoli

  • Rinse the broccoli under cold water to remove any dirt
  • Cut off the stem as close to the start of the florets as possible
  • While the stem can be tough if eaten as is, if you remove the outside layers, the center of that stem is just as tender as any other part
  • So, holding the stem vertically on your cutting board, take off about an 1/8 of an inch from each side of the stem
  • Chop into whatever size pieces you’d like
  • Separate the florets, by cutting them off from the remaining stem structures; or you may be able to just break them off
  • Make sure everything is dry and you’re good to go
