As children, we were always hounded from our parents to eat our broccoli at dinner – and for good reason! Broccoli, amoung other cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, arugula, kale, cabbage, bok choy and Brussels sprouts, are very beneficial to our health overall:
Here are some recipe ideas that incorporate some of these delicious vegetables:
Chop half a head of organic cauliflower into florets. On a baking sheet with foil, coat cauliflower with smoky paprika, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil, and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Add as a side dish and enjoy!
Chop florets of organic broccoli (about 2 C worth) and steam until cooked. Add to a food processor with ¼ C M& M raw almonds, ½ C olive oil, 2 cloves garlic, sea salt, Parmesan cheese and black pepper and mix until smooth (add more oil if necessary). Serve with your favourite organic pasta dish!
