  • - Today on "Learn 2 Love," I wanna help you

  • appreciate one of my all-time favorite

  • glorious green vegetables,

  • broccoli.

  • Love it or hate it, the nutritional value of broccoli

  • cannot be denied.

  • It's full of vitamin C and calcium,

  • and it'll keep you regular, if you know what I mean.

  • Today I wanna show you how to learn to love broccoli

  • by making it three delicious ways.

  • I'm going to show you my oven-roasted broccoli,

  • an incredible broccoli slaw and finally,

  • a broccoli stir fry that you are absolutely

  • going to adore.

  • So let's get started by preparing our broccoli.

  • So I've got a beautiful head of broccoli here,

  • and we're gonna start by removing the florets

  • and putting them aside.

  • A lot of people throw broccoli stalks away,

  • and that is a huge mistake because

  • there are a ton of nutrients in the stalk.

  • I peel them, cut off the woody end

  • and then grate them to use in all sorts of recipes,

  • like the broccoli slaw I'm going to show you

  • in a minute.

  • But first, let's get started with some super simple,

  • but super flavorful, oven-roasted broccoli.

  • So I've got my broccoli florets standing by,

  • and in a small bowl I'm going to combine

  • some olive oil with some minced garlic.

  • I'm going to dress my florets with the

  • olive oil mixture and stir it until it's well coated.

  • Then I'm going to pour it onto a baking sheet

  • and put it into the oven at 425 degrees

  • for between 10 and 15 minutes.

  • When they're ready, they're nice and tender,

  • but they've got some crispy bits on the outside,

  • which make them extra delicious.

  • We're gonna finish these off with some lemon zest,

  • some lemon juice and some freshly grated

  • Parmesan cheese.

  • Broccoli will never be the same again.

  • Now let's talk about my amazing broccoli slaw.

  • It's all the goodness of traditional coleslaw,

  • but with the added benefits of broccoli.

  • So we're gonna get started with our dressing.

  • And this is really, really simple.

  • Instead of mayo in this dressing,

  • I'm using Greek yogurt.

  • You could use mayo, if you prefer.

  • So to my plain Greek yogurt, I am going to add

  • some apple cider vinegar,

  • some honey, and some salt and pepper.

  • It's really as simple as that.

  • I'm going to whisk this all together

  • and then set it aside while I assemble my slaw.

  • So for my slaw, I'm going to be combining

  • some shredded broccoli stalk.

  • I've drained a little bit of the water

  • because I do find it's got some high water content.

  • I'm going to top it with some shredded red cabbage

  • and some shredded carrot.

  • Now, you could also add some shredded apple to this.

  • It gives it a nice sweet bite that I love.

  • If you are adding the apple, though,

  • I definitely recommend adding it just before

  • you mix your salad because otherwise,

  • it will brown and ruin the entire aesthetic

  • of this gorgeous salad.

  • I'm going to add my dressing.

  • We're going to toss this all together,

  • and there you go.

  • You've got an amazing broccoli slaw

  • that is not only super delicious,

  • but also extra nutritious.

  • What could be better than that?

  • Now let's get started on our broccoli stir fry.

  • You know, the great part about this recipe

  • is that it's very versatile.

  • You could add some chicken or some beef.

  • Some grilled shrimp would be amazing with it,

  • or even some tofu.

  • But today I'm keeping it just veg.

  • So I've got some chopped bell pepper

  • and some chopped broccoli standing by.

  • And I'm going to start by heating some oil

  • in a nonstick frying pan.

  • Once the oil is heated, I'm going to add

  • my peppers and then my broccoli.

  • I basically wanna give them a little bit

  • of a head start before I start layering in my flavors.

  • So I'm going to cook this mixture

  • for two or three minutes, or until the broccoli

  • starts to turn bright green.

  • Then I am going to add a whole lot of flavor.

  • What I'm gonna do is create a little well

  • in the middle of my broccoli mixture,

  • and to that I am going to add some garlic,

  • some grated ginger

  • and some chopped red chilies.

  • Now, if you don't like the heat,

  • it's totally fine, you can leave the chilies out.

  • But I think this flavor combination

  • is one of my all-time favorites.

  • I'm going to toss everything together well

  • and then cook this for another 30 seconds or so,

  • or until everything becomes really fragrant.

  • While that's cooking, I'm going to combine

  • a little bit of vegetable broth,

  • some soy sauce

  • and a tablespoon or so of honey.

  • I'm going to whisk it together

  • and then pour it over all of my veggies.

  • We're gonna let this cook for another

  • two or three minutes, and it is ready to serve

  • over a beautiful bed of rice.

  • I'm going to finish it with some crushed cashews

  • and some green onion.

  • And baby, that's dinner.

  • I hope this video has inspired you

  • to get a little more creative with your

  • cruciferous vegetables.

  • And if you give any of these tasty recipes a try,
