Broccoli is full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A, C and K. One cup of broccoli can pack a nutrient-filled punch, even just half of a cup can provide 84 percent of the recommended daily intake for vitamin C. Broccoli can be enjoyed several different ways — boiling, stir-frying, roasting, etc. — but studies show that cooking broccoli can alter its nutrient profile. Steaming seems to be the way to go to avoid too many negative effects.
