D ID YOU KNOW?
One cup of broccoli contains almost twice the recommended amount of vitamin C is an excellent source of folate and vitamin E, and it’s high in beta carotene, calcium, iron, potassium, riboflavin, fibre and vitamin B. It’s also high in lutein and sulphorphane which encourages the production of cancer fighting enzymes in the body!
STORE in a perforated plastic bag in fridge, and remember: if stored too long, broccoli converts sugars into starches, that’s why fresh broccoli is always sweeter.
DON’T LIKE THE TASTE so much? Hide it with some other favorite veggies in a stir-fry or a serving of steamed veggies. I prefer my broccoli raw, but still am not overly fond of the taste, so I drizzle it my favorite homemade dressing and throw in some raisins, diced onion and/or slivered almonds or sesame seeds for a salad variety
