Spicy Broccoli with Prawns and Quinoa

This recipe is very easy and quick to prepare and in addition to broccoli contains a number of "superfoods":

Onions and ginger both contain calcium, magnesuium, phosphorous, potassium

Garlic also contains calcium, potassium and phosphorous, as well as Vitamin C. It has also been shown to lower cholestrol. Note that it should be added at the end of cooking in order that its benefits are maximized.

sh i take Mushrooms contain iron, calcium , magnesium. Some oriental varieties, particularly shiitake have been shown to have antiviral properties and may discourage the development of cancer.

Prawns are a good source of calcium and all shellfish are rich in iodine and selenium.

According to Patrick Holford in 100% Health , Quinoa is about as close to a perfect food as you can get. It contains more protein than any grain and is rich in many vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, B vitamins and vitamin E. It is also rich in polyunsaturated oils, thus providing essential fatty acids.


2 onions, finely chopped
2 inches of ginger, grated
1 teaspoon garam masala
A large pinch of chilli powder
200g sh i t take mushrooms
A large tin of *tomatoes(should be substituted with FRESH mashed tomatoes)

3 garlic cloves, crushed
200g broccoli cut into small florets
1 lime : juice and rind grated
A large bunch of coriander chopped

Cook the onions in 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a wok (or pan) until soft.
