One cup of cooked broccoli has more vitamin C than a fresh orange. Vitamin C enhances iron absorption, making lightly cooked broccoli an ideal companion for iron-rich poultry, seafood or meat.

I cooked this today but used broccolini, zucchini and red capsicum. It was absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the very easy recipe - 21 Oct 2012
