New Year, Healthier You
Now that we've all eaten the delicious offerings of the holiday season it is time to lighten our recipes and encourage healthy eating for a more energetic and healthy year.
This week's cookbook is The G.I. Diet Cookbook by Anthony Worrall Thompson
Warm Broccoli Salad
1 small onion, grated
4 anchovy fillets, mashed
2 teaspoons capers, rinsed and chopped
Juice of 1/2 small lemon
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped mint
10 ounces small broccoli florets (about 5 cups)
Ground black pepper
Thoroughly mix the onion, anchovies, capers, lemon juice, olive oil, and mint in a bowl. Steam the broccoli for 3-5 minutes, then drain and toss with the rest of the salad. Season with black pepper and serve immediately. This salad is also good served at room temperature and is delicious tossed with whole-wheat pasta.
