How To Chop Broccoli
Before you boil broccoli, cut off the bottom inch or two of the stem for more uniformity. Use a sharp knife to further reduce the prep time. Depending on the recipe decide on the size of the florets.
You can chop the florets into bite sized pieces, medium sized florets or big florets. If you’d rather keep it whole, then cut it into pieces that are all the same size.
