Beautiful; As Beauty Goes

Monday, April 23, 2012

Let me just tell you; this was the dinner I made and it was wonderful. No spectacular. It was B.E.A.Utiful! Would you just look at that red cabbage and the greens and the more reds in the red onion? I mean how can we ever see these things and not recognize how incredibly beautiful they are? Don't even get me started on the broccoli. Am I being a little crazy? Yes. 

Here's why! With its special trio of phytonutrients (health-promoting organic compounds), broccoli helps promote and regulate the elimination of toxins from our cells. Steaming the cruciferous vegetable may be the best preparation technique -- research shows it helps lower your cholesterol even more than raw. *See credit below

Coarse salt and pepper

  1. Steam broccoli florets until bright green and tender, about 4 minutes. Remove and set aside. Steam squash until bright yellow and tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, toss greens, cabbage, and red onion. Top with steamed vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with tahini sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds
Don't thank me, thank Whole Living!
