Cruciferous Crack, aka Cauliflower and Broccoli you can’t stop eating!

Cruciferous Crack

I officially OD’ed on this stuff, and I feel pretty good about it.

Broccoli and cauliflower, two of my favorite cruciferous crusaders (disguised by day as plain old boring, borderline bland vegetables) duet together in this bright and flavorful, glucosinolate-packin’ conglomeration.

Full of those cancer cramping compounds found so copiously in this particular lineage of the cabbage family, this stuff is so good for you…..so full of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals – that you will WELCOME the fact that you CAN’T STOP (won’t stop) eating it!

I’m telling you what. Seriously.

Garlic infused veggies roasted with crunchy slivered almonds until everybody is bronzed and toasty, splashed with an invigorating squeeze of lemon and kissed with a dash of grated cheese for a satisfyingly salty finish. Oh, YUM.

Spin-roccoli (aka) Spinach Broccoli Soup

Spin-Rocolli SoupThis is a re-post from a while ago…but I just made a big pot and boy was it good.

Green thumb. Green light. Green room. Greenback. Greenhorn. Green with envy. Green around the gills. Greener pastures.

Lean Green fighting machine. Oh wait a second, did I get that one wrong? 😏

No matter, because that is exactly what you will be if you eat more, yeah, you know what’s coming here: GREENS.

Roasted Broccoli and White Bean Salad

Roasted Broccoli and White Bean Salad

Let me tell you why you want to make this salad. Okay, first and foremost…it is delicious! Charred and delicately crisped roasted broccoli spears serve to just barely wilt down a healthy pile of spinach leaves, all pumped up with cannellini bean powered protein and…if that wasn’t enough for you…..sumptuously draped in a creamy, briny, lemony-dill infused Dijon dabbled dressing! Secondly; it only takes about twenty-five minutes to get this on the table, and third; you can do the meatless Monday thing any day of the week here and be totally fat and happy.

Well. Happy, yes; fat, no.
