We think of broccoli as one of the ultimate vegetables. It has a cabbage-like flavor and a satisfying crunch. It's nutritious, low in calories, available year-round, and hardy. For all these reasons, broccoli is extremely popular. Steam it, stir-fry it, sauté it, bake it in casseroles, purée it in soups, or dunk it raw in dressing or hummus.
