Broccoli is a vegetable that vaguely resembles a tiny tree. It is believed to have originated in Italy over 2,000 years ago and comes from the same scientific family as cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and kale. Broccoli is an extremely nutritious vegetable and is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A and calcium. It is also a rich source of essential nutrients like zinc, phosphorus and potassium. It's good for strengthening bones and is anti-inflammatory. Apart from its innumerable health and nutritional benefits, we love broccoli because it is simply delicious and the perfect ingredient for lip-smacking dishes.
