Broccoli is delicious and nutritious! Try experimenting with the veggie to pasta ratio. 它 Flowers optional. The edible flowers are from the Wheeler Farm Farmers Market, and I love them so much!

A pinch of mustard seed added to the cooked broccoli in this vegan mac & cheese recipe activates the enzyme myrosinase which makes sulforaphane which is ridiculously good for you, anti-inflammatory, fights cancer, and can cross the blood-brain barrier. The same strategy applies to adding the raw form of cruciferous vegetables (i.e. cabbage, kale, collards or Brussels sprouts) back to any that have been cooked.
