It may have Italian roots (even if we don’t eat that part of it), but broccoli is a firm favourite amongst Brits. Don’t believe us? According to a recent survey by Diabetes UK who were seeking which vegetable was the nation’s favourite – it came out on top with an impressive 12% of the vote.

What’s more, it’s a solid source of good stuff for you including vitamin C, folic acid and fibre. But how do you cook up this this national treasure we hear you ask? Luckily for you, we have three super easy ways you can enjoy this bastion of greenery.
