2-ingredient broccoli salad

Important to know:

  • Choose smaller broccoli (500-600 g / 1.1-1.3 lb) – it is more likely to be organic and not boosted with agro-chemicals
  • You may use a few drops of liquid from feta cheese package as a dressing
  • Moderate amount of salt is crucial to release mucus and toxins from a body. We usually feel cravings for salty food because a body is overfilled with mucus and toxins, with unnatural food we eat (1) That is why salted feta is in this recipe, but!
  • But Do not add salt additionally to any of salads – it causes juices of vegetables and herbs to release – now all the taste will be in salty liquid on a bottom of a bowl, but vegetables by themselves would become less tasty
  • You may use other kitchen utensils like grater, sharp big knife or even blender to shred broccoli and pepper, but the taste and general feeling while eating will change. You would agree – raw broccoli is hard to chew, yes it is. But with a food processor you will get another consistency and much more pleasure while eating!
  • According to Prof. A. Ehret (1866-1922), one should eat as simple food as possible, mixing not more than 2-3 plant products for a dish (1). And that should be a whole breakfast, lunch or dinner – just a dish consisting 1, 2 or maximum 3 plant ingredients.

1-2-3 ingredient dishes are easy to make and easy to digest. You may already find more 1-2-3 ingredient recipes on my site:

Salad Fig with scallion? Oh yes

  • To get maximum well-feeling benefits from broccoli you should follow a few things:
    • use raw broccoli
    • cut in into pieces
    • let it stay on a counter for 1 h

Why to use broccoli raw, cut and wait? I will explain it in the post this Friday, October 2, 2020 in the Al’chemist on Fridays rubric:)

stay tuned!:)
