Adding broccoli to your diet can be a great way to boost your nutrient intake and support overall health. Broccoli is a nutrient-dense vegetable that provides a variety of health benefits. Broccoli is a great source of vitamins C, K, and A, as well as folate, fiber, and minerals such as potassium and iron. Broccoli is also high in fiber, which can promote regular bowel movements and support healthy digestion.

Stir-fried broccoli is a popular side dish in Chinese cuisine that’s easy to make and can be prepared in less than 15 minutes. You can also add other ingredients to the stir fry, such as baby corn, or sliced bell peppers. And you can serve the dish as a side or add protein like chicken, shrimp, or tofu to make it a main dish.
