Broccoli, Carrot and Peas with Coconut Curry Sauce

IMG_0805

I’ve made this dish before, but think it deserves another spotlight. To me, broccoli is best when it’s soft and swimming in a creamy sauce. This recipe lets me have that experience without feeling weighed down. This is a rich and filling recipe that is vegan and only involves a handful of ingredients.

Here are some glowing facts about the showstopper, aka broccoli:

Broccoli: is packed with potassium, magnesium and calcium, which help regulate blood pressure, contains the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, fights cancer, contributes to bone health with its vitamin K and calcium content, protects against sun damage, boosts the immune system with its beta-carotene, zinc and selenium, is high in fiber, promotes weight loss, improves vision, and prevents heart disease.

Also, read about the benefits of turmeric in this article I wrote for EcoSalon.com. It’s potent stuff!
