Unbelievably Broccoli is the richest vegetable sources of calcium, iron and magnesium. Moreover, broccoli is very rich in vitamins A and C, exceeding even oranges. This is good news for all those who don't like milk. Eat broccoli instead .
Broccoli is also considered one of the major anti-cancer foods. Broccoli tastes better when its crunchy not when its over cooked.
Broccoli omelet is another way to relish this bundle of nutrition. Eggs are an important source of protein, essential vitamins and minerals and can make a significant contribution to a healthy diet. The yolks are a rich source of Lutein(good for eye sight) and Zeaxanthin, (carotenoids) essential vitamins with antioxidant value . Organic eggs are much healthier .Organic eggs are from hens given no hormones or antibiotics and fed only organically certified feed grown without pesticides, insecticides or herbicides.
Ingredients you'll need is
1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
2 large Organic Eggs
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO)
To make broccoli omelet
Heat a non-stick pan on medium flame.
Meanwhile whisk eggs with salt for few seconds until you see tiny bubbles. Now stir in other ingredients expect Oil.
Drizzle EVOO around the heated pan. Pour in the egg mixture. Let the eggs set before flipping that take about 2 minutes. Flip and let cook for another minute. Your omelet is ready to serve with Flat Bread .
Health Nut Substitute
Chopped Spinach instead of Broccoli is an equally good substitute.
