Broccoli becomes delicious and colorful when you fan it after boiling it for a short time.

Ingredients

Broccoli
1 bunch
Salt
1 teaspoon plus

Steps

1. Rinse the broccoli well with water. Chop off the stem, then break the floret into smaller bunches. Peel the hard parts of the stem to chop into smaller pieces.
2. Heat some water in a pot. Add salt and bring it to a boil. Start with adding the broccoli stems. After about 20 seconds, add the rest of the broccoli. Cook for 1-2 minutes and drain in a sieve.
