A simple and quick way to enjoy this amazing super food.
Recent studies show that broccoli is very high in the suloraphane, an antioxidant that's been found to fight airway inflammation, helping allergy and asthma sufferers stay wheeze-free.
The research has found that eating only 100-200 grams (roughly one cup) of broccoli per day can give you this benefit. Food is medicine :)
difficulty level: ultra beginner
equipment needed: outdoor grill or stove top grill
prep time: 5 minutes
cook time: 5- 12 minutes (depending on grill size)
what you need:
- 2 bunches broccoli, you can absolutely do just one bunch but this is such an easy recipe, why not make a lot and have some for a few days.
- vegetable oil spray
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
what to do:
- preheat outdoor grill on high; if you are using a stove top grill only heat it to medium high.
- cut off just the end of the stem, then slice broccoli into 1/4 inch thick pieces
- lightly spray broccoli with oil, the place sprayed side down on the grill.
- cook 1.5 minutes on outdoor grill, a little longer on indoor grill; broccoli should not be burnt but should show nice char marks.
- spray broccoli and flip, cook another 1.5 minutes (again longer on stove top grill)
- if working on outdoor grill, you can do this in one batch; on indoor grill you will need to do about 3-4 batches.
- remove from grill
sprinkle evenly with salt and onion powder
I sprinkled some roasted chickpeas and beans for added crunch, and drizzled it with my Light Tahini Dressing,
