Broccoli. What a star of a vegetable. It really is the one of the most delicious and easiest vegetables to work with. Roasted, steamed, sauteed, pureed...plus the health benefits are incredible!
Broccoli gives us so many nutrients and is one of the most power packed vegetables around. These are just some reasons why it should be appearing often in your diet:
Sold? Well let's get to my favourite broccoli recipe that can be ready as quick as a flash:
Broccoli Bowl - Serves 2
You will need:
1.5 cups of broccoli florets
1 leek finely sliced (or use an onion or even a zucchini!)
1 cup of thinly shredded cabbage (or use kale)
1/4 cup of chopped raw almonds (or use cashews)
3 - 4 tblspns of coconut oil
1/2 - 1 cup of shredded roast chicken (or any leftover meat)
3 - 4 tblspns of coconut aminos (can use 1 - 2 tblspns of tamari)
a sprinkle of seeds (sesame and pepitas are my faves)
What You Do:1. Heat coconut oil in a large frypan (broccoli is very thirsty so use more coconut oil if needed)
2. Add in your leek and saute until soft
3. Add your broccoli florets and cabbage and stir fry until your broccoli is bright green and your cabbage is soft
4. Add your shredded chicken and almonds and stir through for a few minutes
5. Add your coconut aminos and stir for another minute
6. Take off the heat and pop into a bowl and sprinkle with some pepitas and sesame seeds.
7. Dig in!
**Optional Extras - Add a half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with the leek at the beginning and it's also nice with some fresh ginger grated in as well! To beef it up a little try adding some Kelp noodles! Top with some sauerkraut or avocado. I get my coconut aminos and kelp noodles through Organics on a Budget
Give it a go and take a pic for me and tag me on instagram with @_naughty_naturopath_mum if you do so I can look at some broccoli bowls not cooked by me for a change! 😉
