Warm Broccoli and Almond Salad

Since we moved to the new house, I didnt do anything special for us. So I planned a date night. Got dressed up, cooked a lovely meal and ofcourse we clicked pictures.

Oh and do you know about the #100sareepact ? So whoever joins in promises to wear a saree 100 times in a year. Not tooo much to ask, for sure. Plus I love wearing sari 🙂

Coming to the Broccoli salad. Here are few things about broccoli that will inform you about why it is important to eat it:

Lowers cholestrol (steamed ones)

De-toxification of the body.

Anti-inflammatory.

Cancer prevention.

1/2 a cup of brocolli has about 22 calories.

Lots of fiber.

Helps damaged skin.

Keeps eyes healthy.

So what are you waiting for, get that tree of life and get cooking. 🙂

Instructions
  1. Wash the broccoli thoroughly and keep aside.
  2. In the pan, heat the oil, add the sesame, garlic and  almond flakes.
  3. Roast them on a medium heat until the seeds pop.
  4. Remove from heat and empty the contents in a bowl to be used later.
  5. In the same pan, add the broccoli and salt and half of the water.
  6. Cover and cook on a medium heat for about 2 min.
  7. Water would have evaporated, if not check the done-ness of the brocolli. We don't want a mush. Insert a knife in one of the florets and make sure it is able to pierce the floret easily.
  8. Stop cooking instantly/add more water if needed.
  9. Once done, take it out in a bowl and place over another bowl of cold water. We want the green color to be intact hence, shocking it will do the trick.
  10. Once it is nice and warm/not hot, add the sesame and almonds.
  11. Serve with love.
