My friend Deloris shared this recipe with me over the phone. I didn’t write it down and made it memory so it might not be exactly what she described but itis DELICIOUS!
I just love it and so does everyone else. I made it for a church dinner last night. It was big hit.
It was so delicious I ate it for breakfast this morning.
Health Benefits Of Broccoli
Health Food Guide gives the benifits of Broccoli:
Broccoli provides a high amount of vitamin C, which aids iron absorption in the body, prevents the development of cataracts, and also eases the symptoms of the common cold.
The folic acid in broccoli helps women sustain normal tissue growth and is often used as a supplement when taking birth control pills and during pregnancies.
I3C promotes “good” hormones, while working against destructive ones. The sulforaphane in broccoli also helps to increase the level of enzymes that block cancer, while the beta-carotene in broccoli transforms into vitamin A within the body, providing an effective antioxidant that destroys free radicals (responsible for weakening the defense of cells).
