Place broccoli in a colander and rinse thoroughly under cool running water. Unless stalks are especially tender, cut off the thick base and peel them. Cut heads into florets.
Raw broccoli is great tossed in salads or in veggie platters with dips.
Blanch broccoli in boiling water for two minutes, then drain and rinse immediately with cold water to capture the color and develop great flavor.
