Broccoli Salad

A kilo of broccoli only contains 240 calories and 2 gramms of fat, so it's ideal for almost any diets. It also contains 33g of protein, 21g of carbohydrates and it's rich in folic acid, so consuming broccoli during pregnancy, after labour and whilst breast feeding, is a great idea. 
 Eating broccoli is revitalizing - it's iron and vitamin-C content can boost your fat-metabolism.

Note: Don't consume broccoli with creamy- or cheesy dipping, nor deep-fried, because that will only increase your weight.


Broccoli Salad:

0.5kgs of broccoli
1 medium sized red onion
2tbsp of balsamic vinegar
3tbsp of olive oil
2tbsp of caper
3-5 olives (chopped to rounds)
25g of mandel-flakes
25g of peanut flakes
(if you can't get flakes, you can buy whole peanuts then chop them to smaller - rustic pieces) :)
salt, pepper

Tear the broccoli flower to pieces and boil them in hot water for 2-3 minutes. Pour the water from the broccoli and leave them dripping. 

Take a pan and roast the mandel- and the peanut flakes until they get golden-brown coloured, then put them into a little plastic pot to cool.
Put the pan back onto the stove, add the olive oil and the sliced onions. Add salt and pepper on flavour, then fry the onion till it gets softer. Add the caper and the chopped olives and the broccoli, and keep frying them for another 5mins. Put the hot salad onto 2 plates then pour them with the balsamic vinegar. Enjoy. :)
