It may have been the vegetable non grata at your childhood dinner table, but now that you’re a super-chic college chick there’s no reason to balk at broccoli. Of all the greens with which to fill your plate, broccoli has a unique varied texture that soaks up yummy sauces, and is robust and filling, too. Now is the peak season for the veggie, so it’s a great time to stock up on its calcium and folate.
- Awesome as a crispy, fresh vehicle for hummus spread or paired with Laughing Cow cheese.
- Steam in boiling water and serve drizzled with Thai peanut sauce (available in the ethnic foods section of your grocery store)
- Chop and scramble with eggs and ham for an omelet twist.
The Recipe: Sesame Broccoli Salad
By now, you’re probably tired of the caf salad bar and its endless iceberg lettuce. Whip up this salad at home and it will serve you for a week. Sometimes I add chunks of steamed chicken for a protein boost and to make it a complete meal. Crunchy, sweet, and savory!
