Can a person become addicted to broccoli?
If possible, I think I’m addicted to broccoli.
If not possible, I still think I am addicted to broccoli!
I’ve been eating broccoli with every meal except breakfast and even managed to sneak in some broccoli in my snacks, but I did not truly fall in love with broccoli until I ate today’s lunch.
‘Quinoa Broccoli Bowl’
serves 2 as a main dish, 4 as a side dish
- 6 T of quinoa
- 12 T of vegetable broth
- half a can of tinned lentils
- half a medium broccoli
- 1 T of hummus
- some lemon or lime juice
Cook the quinoa in the vegetable broth: add the quinoa when the broth boils and reduce it to a simmer, let it absorb all of the liquid (it takes about 20 minutes). Cook the broccoli in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Rinse the lentils
As soon as the quinoa is done, add 1 T of hummus and stir to combine. Add the lentils and the broccoli. Sprinkle with some lemon/lime juice right before serving.
This stuff is so incredibly creamy! It reminds me of when my mum used to make broccoli in cheese sauce.
Fruit for dessert: Melon + strawberries + cottage cheese + sunshine = one happy Maxime!
