If you need a warm nourishing meal that’s quick and easy to make then you can’t go past my warm broccoli salad with kale, lime and roasted tamari almonds. It’s my go to wellness recipe that makes you feel amazing after eating it. Delicious on its own or served with extra protein such as steamed white fish drizzled with extra lime, olive oil and black pepper. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner !
What’s great about it:
The broccoli is full of alkalinising, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer phytonutrients called sulforaphane that work to support optimum health and protect against disease. It’s a true superfood rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, E and CoQ10. Broccoli is also a wonderful source of B group vitamins, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and manganese. Almonds are high in the minerals potassium and magnesium to help nourish the nervous system when under stress. The lime helps to alkalinise whilst the black pepper will enhance digestion and work as an anti-inflammatory.
1 head of broccoli, roughly chopped
½ bunch kale, trimmed and finely sliced
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 generous teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 whole lime
1 bunch coriander, chopped
handful tamari roasted almonds, chopped
Green chilli – optional – but yum
Sauté the broccoli in a large pan with the olive oil, garlic and ginger over a medium heat, making sure to toss the pan occasionally and allow the broccoli to cook through. This should take about 3 minutes.
Add the kale and toss through until just wilted. Add chili if using.
Squeeze over the lime juice and toss through the coriander. Season to taste add a generous amount of black pepper.
Serve in bowls sprinked with tamari roasted almonds.
