Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Broccoli, just like kale, is part of the cruciferous vegetables family. Broccoli has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits, it is rich in fibre, enhances detoxification and a cup of broccoli amply covers Vitamin C and vitamin K recommended daily values.

This is a brilliant way to add more raw broccoli to your diet, and if you like raw kale chips, you are going to love these raw dehydrated broccoli chips !

For 2 :

500g Broccoli

2 small handfuls Cashews (soaked for at least 2 hours, then rinsed)

4 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

2 tbsp Soy lecithin*

2 tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon juice

1/2 to 1 tsp Chili flakes or chili powder or Cayenne pepper powder (optional)

*Soy lecithin is not raw. Sunflower lecithin is. I always use lecithin with fats to make sure the fats are properly broken down.

Prepare the broccoli by washing it, draining it and cutting it into small florets. Reserve the stalks for green juice, for example.

Prepare the dressing by blending all ingredients (except the broccoli) with just enough water to blend until super smooth. Pour the dressing over the broccoli, and thoroughly mix, making sure that the broccoli florets are perfectly coated.

And finally, evenly spread your seasoned broccoli florets onto a dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate at 42°C for about 24 hours or until crispy. Check halfway and then every few hours, trying not to eat it all. The time needed to dehydrate the broccoli chips until crispy varies, as it depends on the temperature and humidity levels around.


Keep Smiling,
