3 New Things to do With Broccoli

That aren't steaming!!


Broccoli. Such a staple, but who isn't bored with steaming? There's so much more we can do with this superfood.


Rich in Vitamins K and C, as well as folate and chromium. Chromium is one of the most helpful minerals for reducing sugar cravings, so consider adding broccoli if you often crave dessert after your meals.

Folate is essential for immune and nervous system health, and not too many foods have more of it to offer than broccoli.





Tahini Roasted Broccoli

Tahini is a great source of protein.  This dish will work for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner.  I like it on a salad with avocado, a little more tahini made into a dressing by mixing with olive oil, other veggies like bell peppers, and maybe even a little sauerkraut ;)

Ingredients: - 2 Tbls tahini

- Juice of one lemon

- 1 clove garlic, minced

- Sea salt & ground pepper, to taste

- 2-3 Tbs olive oil

- 4 cups broccoli, cut into florets

Instructions:

1.) Preheat over to 450 degrees

2.) Mix all ingredients except broccoli in a bowl.  

3.) Add broccoli and toss well.Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake for 10 minutes.
