Anytime you can add a vegetable into a recipe you know that you are doing something good for you and your family. Did you know that broccoli is considered a superfood? Superfoods are vegetables and fruits that are high in vitamins and minerals that you want to get into your diet on a daily basis. Broccoli is a vegetable that is part of the cabbage family whose treelike edible green flower head is eaten. Broccoli is high in dietary fiber, and vitamin C. Broccoli is a vegetable that is good to eat on a regular basis as it is known to contain several nutrients that have strong anti-cancer properties. A single serving of broccoli can provide a good amount of vitamin C. Boiling broccoli does reduce the levels of anti-carcinogenic compounds, so you want to steam it if you can. Other preparation methods of broccoli such as steaming, microwaving, and stir-frying are good suggestions, as they have no significant effect on the compounds found in the vegetable.
The potato is a vegetable that is starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial nightshade family. In the Andes, where the potato is indigenous there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region approximately four centuries ago and had since become an important part of much of the world's food supply. Potatoes are the world's fourth largest food crop, followed by maize, wheat, and rice. Popular potato dishes include mashed potatoes recipes, whole baked potato recipes, boiled or steamed potatoes, French fried potatoes or chips and more. You can also make cut into cubes and roasted potatoes, scalloped potato recipes, diced, or sliced and fried (home fries), grated into small thin strips and fried (hash browns), grated and formed into dumplings, Rösti or potato pancakes.
