Healthyeating.org tells us, “ Broccoli is high in sulforophane, a sulfur-containing compound present in cruciferous vegetables. Sulforophane has anti-cancer properties and may promote the elimination of potential carcinogens from the body. Studies suggest that a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables may reduce the risk of some cancers, especially stomach and lung cancers. As if that’s not enough, a cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange, and is very rich in beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It is also high in fiber and low in calories.” Now, just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it’s delicious… or that our kids like it. Because of this, we kid-tested these broccoli recipes and trust us, they always win with ours.
