““Don’t waste that stalk!
Food is so expensive, especially when it’s organic. Therefore, I’ve created a recipe that uses the Broccoli Stalk we usually throw away! As well as saving us money, this soup also tastes amazing! Let me know what you think.”

Make this simple Broccoli Stalk Soup! Don't even thing about throwing away that Stalk!
Not only is the Broccoli stalk tasty, but it contains Sulforaphane, a powerful antioxidant.
Research suggests that the presence of this antioxidant improves the effectiveness of the Nrf2 Protein. This is thought to make cells better able to fight off damage. Furthermore, eating Broccoli has been linked to a lowered risk of heart disease and cancer. It’s also believed to reduce the affects of arthritis, prevent oxidation of “bad” cholesterol and reduce inflammation of the arteries. It may also help to keep the immune function from declining with age. Now that would be a nice thing! All this just from eating some healthy food. But it’s not all about limp lettuce and sorry looking salad bowls. Eating healthily can mean a big bowl of warm, satisfying soup. Something that will fill you up but not pile n the pounds. You’re also being resourceful and eating more of the food you buy. Far better for the environment, and your purse, as it saves you money.
What about onions?
I would suggest you to use fresh onions in this recipe. Onions contain high levels of Quercetin. Researchers have linked this to the lowering of blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease. It also offers added protection against the effects of cadmium toxicity. Great for a food that is cheap to buy and readily available. Onions also keep well, so you can always have a fresh and healthy food source at hand.
