Broccoli is a super-food just like kale, a super antioxidant! Broccoli has vitamins K and C, it is a good source of folate, and also provides potassium and fiber. I know many people don’t like it, especially kids. I remember when my daughter Nina was 8 months old, she loved broccoli! However, she stopped eating it after turning two. Well, you know what, I decided to incorporate it into her favorite cheese pasta, and ever since all our kids ask for this dish at least once a week. We even used that sauce on our homemade pizza once. Wow! Usually, we have leftovers after a pizza night, but that night there was nothing left!
Warm Soup for the cold weather
That’s it, winter is here! It is very cold outside and a thick layer of snow covers the ground. It’s time for a nice bowl of hot soup! I don’t know about you, but I like to know the origin of the food I cook. Where it’s coming from and how the recipe started. So, here is a little bit of history of the word minestrone. In the meaning of thick vegetable soup, it was attested in English from 1871. The word comes from the Italian word for “that which is served”, and cognitively similar to “administer” as in “administer a remedy”. This soup could often contain herbs, beans, bits of pasta, ect., and it is served with Parmesan cheese.
