Ever since I have treated myself to the cookbooks of The Green Kitchen, I love them more and more every single say. The flavour combinations are great, the colours beautiful and the taste, well, more than delicious of you ask me. Today I made myself a nice raw broccoli salad, from their first book “The Green Kitchen”
I love the combination of the firm broccoli with the juicy onion, sweet raisins and pomegranate seeds and to make it complete the crunch of sunflower seeds. I could not have thought of a better combination myself. Packed with raw ingredients, this salad is a true nutrient bomb, in the good sense of the word.
Broccoli really fits in a healthy lifestyle, but besides adding it to a green smoothie is not eater raw so often. Which is actually a pity, because I think that it tastes better than the cooked, steamed or stir fried version.
Broccoli is an perfect source of vitamin K, vitamin C, chromium and folate. And it is a good source of dietary fiber, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, vitamin B1, vitamin A, potassium and copper.
