Broccoli Bake

I happen to be one of these people who have a natural love for vegetables and never had to be coaxed or made to eat them – I realize that this is not the case with everyone.  Just recently I overheard two mothers talking about this.  One was telling the other that the only way she can get vegetables into the family diet is to blend them into spaghetti sauce.  Of course a good Bolognese sauce already has carrots, onions, and celery in it.  I suppose one could slip a little green vegetable in if they were careful not to overdo it.

The other mother maintained that her trick was to always serve them with tasty dips and sauces.  I would like to offer another suggestion that works especially well with broccoli, the widely acclaimed miracle food, medically proven to be a nutritional super star.  Hidden within each stalk and floweret is a powerful substance effective in lowering cholesterol and preventing cancer and contributing to overall health in general.

Try my Broccoli Bake and see for yourself if you don’t immediately feel stronger, healthier and more satisfied than you ever have after eating this nutrient rich vegetable!
