The Instacart guide to broccoflower

Broccoflower is an unusual vegetable that's worth a try if you've never had one. It looks like a green cauliflower but is actually a broccoli-cauliflower mix. Broccoflower is also called green ball, green cauliflower, or romanesco broccoli. Broccoflower comes in two types. One type looks like regular cauliflower, while the other has conical, pointed, spiraling clusters of florets in a similar color as broccoli. Farmers and producers in the United States have grown broccoflower for many years.

Broccoflower is highly nutritious and offers consumers several health benefits. It's a good source of folate, a B vitamin that's important for developing and repairing all body tissues. Folate is also necessary to make proteins like collagen that play important roles in healing wounds, maintaining the structure of cartilage, bones, and teeth, and strengthening bones to prevent osteoporosis. Because broccoflower is low in carbohydrates, starch, fat, sodium, and calories, it can help you maintain a healthy weight and improve blood sugar levels. It's also a great source of vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting.

Broccoflower is a rich source of vitamin C that's important for the proper functioning of your immune system and iron absorption. It helps fight viral infections and can lower your risk of catching a cold or the flu. As it is rich in dietary fiber, broccoflower also helps boost metabolism and prevent digestive disorders. The fiber from broccoflower helps protect the stomach lining, prevent bacterial growth inside the stomach, and reduce constipation. It's also a good source of vitamin A, a nutrient that supports vision and ocular health.

Because broccoflower belongs to the cruciferous species of plants, it contains compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that lower the risk of breast, ovarian, bladder, and colon cancer. It protects against the harmful effects of free radicals that damage the cells in the body. Broccoflower is important for maintaining a healthy heart because its anti-inflammatory properties prevent the absorption of bad cholesterol and thinning of arteries. As a result, broccoflower can help reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.

FAQs about broccoflower

Broccoflower is a vegetable that looks like cauliflower, but its head is lime-green. It's a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. Broccoflower is usually smaller, lighter, less crisp, and less dense than white cauliflower.

If you eat broccoflower raw, you will find it slightly milder, tender, sweeter, and easier to chew than cauliflower. Cooked broccoflower, however, tastes like broccoli.

You can eat broccoflower in several ways and pair it with almost anything. You can cook or serve it just like you would regular cauliflower. You can also substitute it for cauliflower or broccoli in your favorite recipes. 

You can stir-fry, roast, or microwave broccoflower. You can also churn broccoflower into a fine puree, and boil it into a creamy soup. You can add broccoflower to quiche or vegetable gratin, a cheese-loaded side dish. Remember to wash your broccoflower thoroughly just before cooking. Then cut the florets into similar sizes, so they cook uniformly. You can chop up and add raw broccoflower to salads. When blanched in warm water, you can also serve it as a part of a vegetable tray with dips.
