Description

Broccoli Flower

The broccoli or Brassica oleracea flower belongs to the Brazilian family. As its name indicates, this species blooms from broccoli, a very common food in the Mediterranean diet. This food is born in the form of small branches and green colour. On the contrary, the flower (edible) that is born from broccoli is yellow. It looks very similar to arugula flower and wild mustard.

The broccoli flower is small in size and its flavour is similar to broccoli but less intense. On the palate, it leaves a very pleasant sensation of freshness. Its flowering begins in mid-May and usually ends in late summer.

Pairing

This edible flower should be used primarily with foods such as fish, seafood, any type of meat, in salads and stews. But it will not be we who discard the broccoli flower in a cake since its flavour does not camouflage that of the sweet. Its way of use will depend on the hand of the cook: a merely decorative element is usually the main use that is given in the kitchen.

Medicinal properties

Broccoli itself contains a lot of vitamin C and fibre, so the flower inherits these nutrients. Following this “rule of inheritance”, the broccoli flower has many anti-cancer properties as well as anti-viral and anti-bacterial. As medicinal properties we can highlight:

  • It helps lower cholesterol and prevents heart disease
  • Strengthens bones because of its high calcium, magnesium and zinc content
  • Antioxidant properties
  • Prevents cancer
  • It helps to treat as well as prevent anaemia
  • Treat constipation
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Delay the ageing process
