How to Prepare Broccoflower
Wash broccoflower well, both on the surface as well as underneath by the stem and “branches”. To cut, much like cauliflower, separate the florets from the stem rather from the top of the floret. You’ll have less of a mess and you’ll be able to eat as much of the vegetable without cutting off any pieces.
Try to cut them into uniform pieces for a more even cooking time and result.
Just like broccoli or cauliflower, you can enjoy broccoflower raw. To cook, you can blanch, steam, roast, or even grill broccoflower. Each method will yield a slightly sweeter flavour than raw, and roasting or grilling will add a unique dimension of flavour! Try it many ways to find out your favourite.
How to Freeze Broccoflower
To freeze broccoflower, first cut it into florets, then blanch them in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain, and immediately submerge in an ice bath to halt the cooking process.
Spread out on a baking sheet to flash freeze, then transfer to an airtight bag or container. Use within 1 year.
