The food I think you are looking for is "Broccoli, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt" - 55 calories per cup, chopped. (The discrepancy here is that 1 cup of uncooked broccoli does not yield 1 cup of cooked broccoli.)

These foods are unlikely to change as we are committed to being as accurate as possible using USDA foods. We are, however, improving our search results so that these issues are less likely.

Try adding "boiled" to your search for vegetables i.e.: Search results for "Broccoli boiled" return "Broccoli, cooked, boiled, drained" with and without salt as the first two results.
If you cook frozen broccoli does it shrink or get bigger? Its not more than a cup when measured frozen from the bag so would it be more than a cup when cooked? I just nuke it in the microwave in water then add just a tiny bit of salt. I get the kind that is just the broccoli florrets and doesn't have the stalk part.
