For boiling, bring salted water to a boil and add the broccoli. Cook in the open pot until it is tender to your liking. Remove the broccoli from the boiling water using a slotted spoon or drain it. If you want to serve it cold, shock it in an ice bath; otherwise, serve it warm with your choice of seasoning.

To roast the broccoli, toss it in olive oil and seasoning of choice, place the broccoli directly on a baking sheet, and roast in the oven until it is tender and lightly colored. The cooking time will depend on the size of the florets or spears. Always test for doneness to avoid overcooking. Ditch the parchment paper and aluminum foil to achieve crispy edges.

Do not cover the broccoli while cooking, whether boiling or roasting. Covering the pot or pan causes the broccoli to turn a dull brown-green color. Broccoli's vibrant green hue can be maintained by boiling it in plenty of water in an open pot.
