The broccoli is full of alkalinising, anti-inflammatory and phytonutrients called sulforaphane that work to support optimum health and protect against disease. It’s a true superfood rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, E and CoQ10. Broccoli is also a wonderful source of B group vitamins, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and manganese. Make it tonight and feel the benefits!
1 head of broccoli, roughly chopped
½ bunch kale, trimmed and finely sliced
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 generous teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 whole lime
1 bunch coriander, chopped
handful tamari roasted almonds, chopped
green chilli – optional – but yum
- Sauté the broccoli in a large pan with the olive oil, garlic and ginger over a medium heat, making sure to toss the pan occasionally and allow the broccoli to cook through. This should take about 3 minutes.
- Add the kale and toss through until just wilted. Add chilli if using.
- Squeeze over the lime juice and toss through the coriander. Season to taste and add a generous amount of black pepper.
- Serve in bowls sprinkled with tamari roasted almonds.
