If you don’t have a steamer, over a high heat bring about ½ to 1-inch of salted water to a boil in the bottom of a saucepan big enough to take the broccoli in more or less in one layer. The water should not cover the broccoli florets. Throw in the broccoli stems, cover and cook for 1-2 minutes then add the florets, cover and cook a further 3-4 minutes. Drain immediately.
