·1-min read

There are a ton of ways to cook broccoli. You can boil it, roast it, stir-fry it and even microwave it. But have you ever cooked it the way Joe Wicks does it?

Joe aka The Body Coach shared a video on Instagram of his broccoli carbonara recipe, which is in his new book, Joe’s Family Food. The recipe looks delicious – there’s no doubt about that. But the way Joe boils his broccoli has got everyone in equal parts confused and delighted.

So, you know how when you boil broccoli, chances are you cut the broccoli into florets before popping it into boiling water for a few minutes? Well – get this – Joe puts the whole head of broccoli in boiling water. Yup, the whole thing. He then takes it out of the boiling water before cutting it up. Interesting, right?
