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.
Sorry, just bad word choices and explanation on my part. I keep answering this question, though, and sometimes I get on autopilot. I know y'all are working on improving the search function, not changing foods; did not mean to imply that.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
