1. Cut cauliflower into flowerets. Cut tough stalks from broccoli; trim tough sides; cut stalks into coins; cut head into flowerets.

2. Bring 6 cups water in large saucepan to boiling. Add cauliflower, broccoli and salt. Return to boiling; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender-crisp, about 8 minutes. Drain.
