Broccoli is typically not blanched on the plant. This is typically only done with cauliflower. But, if you want to blanch, you just cover the head. This can be done either by covering the head with a bag or tying the outer leaves up over the head. Blanching a broccoli will result in a yellowish head and milder flavor.
