Spicy broccoli salad

Did you know that broccoli is actually part of the cabbage family ? Though it looks nothing like its cousins , it is just as delicious and healthy. In fact, broccoli is full of vitamin A & C and it is also perfect for salads as it does not turn mushy easily. Most people eat only the green flowered parts of the plant and throw away the stem. But I actually find the stem really delicious too. Besides its just a waste of good food to throw it away. Simply peel of the outer layer and cut the green flesh into small pieces before stir frying or blanching.
