Nutritional Tips- To keep the broccoli crunchy and bright green, boil for 5 minutes and then plunge straight into a bowl of ice water to halt the cooking process.
- If you like your broccoli well cooked but don’t won't it to lose its colour, you can add a teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda to the water as you boil it.
- If you are short of time and have a microwaveable dish, simply put the chopped broccoli in the dish, put the lid on and cook on full power for 3 minutes.
- You can eat the thick broccoli stalks too: peel using a peeler, cut into strips and then into cubes and cook with the florets.
- Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds that is very popular throughout the Mediterranean basin. It is a key ingredient in hummus. If you haven’t got any tahini, you can always use sesame oil or sesame seeds.
- Walnuts are powerful antioxidants and are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital for cleaning our arteries. Nutritional experts advise eating at least three walnuts a day. Mix them with yogurt for breakfast; toss some into a salad for lunch; and knock back a handful as an ideal afternoon snack.
