Sautéed Broccoli with Garlic

Sautéed Broccoli with Garlic

If you’re one of those people who hate broccoli, it’s because you haven’t tried the right recipe. With its many health benefits, broccoli should be part of your diet as much as other, more common, vegetables. In order to take advantage of its many vitamins and antioxidants, broccoli is best steamed and not boiled. The more you cook it, the more nutrients it loses. This is one of the easiest and most delicious broccoli recipe I know. I love the sautéed broccoli with garlic because you can either have it on its own, or as a side. I normally pair this with sweet potatoes, mushrooms or quinoa and it’s just divine!

Health Benefits

At no more than 31 calories per serving, broccoli is well-known for its amazing health benefits. It has anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventing properties. Plus, it’s high in fibre, potassium and vitamin C. Broccoli is also great for your immune and digestive system, being rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals. I know a lot people don’t like broccoli, but I’m sure that as long as you know how to cook it, you can start loving it as much as I do. No week goes by without cooking a big batch of roast vegetables containing broccoli, and it is as delicious as it is healthy.
