How Long to Cook Broccoli
It takes between 5 and 15 minutes to cook broccoli, depending on how you cook it. Broccoli can be boiled, roasted, or steamed, and each method gives the broccoli a different taste and consistency. Steaming and boiling broccoli takes about the same length of time, between 5 to 10 minutes. The broccoli should become bright green and tender when ready to eat. But roasting broccoli gives it a slightly crispy texture and brings out a deeper flavor. Our favorite roasted broccoli recipe calls for cooking the broccoli in a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes with a bit of oil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese to maximize the deliciousness!
