BROCCOLI SPROUTS AND MICROGREENS IN RECIPES

To benefit from the the heat-sensitive the fine nutrients and anti-oxidants by the name of sulforafaner you should eat Broccoli sprouts raw. Fortunately raw Broccoli sprouts are delicious in all raw green dishes. I use my own Broccoli sprouts in salads, stuffed in green wraps and as ornaments on warm food.

I prefer to wash the black hulls away instead of eating these as I find I get sufficient fiber in the sprouts. I typically eat the roots during cooking or blend them in smoothies or use them in green dips.
