I used to call them “little trees” when I was a wee one. I loved to eat them raw, enjoyed the crunchy bite. Here are some fun things to know about BROCCOLI from wikipedia:
1. From the Italian plural of broccolo, referring to “the flowering top of a cabbage”
2. Broccoli is high in vitamins A, C and K, as well as dietary fiber.
3.It also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties, such as diindolylmethane and small amounts of selenium.
4. Broccoli is rad. My dog Lulu likes it too. This part was from me, not wikipedia.
So whether you are steaming or munching on it raw, eat up! It’s super good for you and I think delicious dipped in a tahini dressing such as Annie’s Goddess Dressing! We also enjoy broccoli on hearty pasta dishes and in big yummy salads!
