IN­GRE­DI­ENTS SERVES 8 TENDERSTEM BROC­COLI, 500G TAHINI PASTE, 200G POME­GRAN­ATE MO­LASSES POME­GRAN­ATE SEEDS, 150G DRY ROASTED PEANUTS, 100G

METHOD

1/ Blanch the broc­coli be­fore grilling for five min­utes. As well as re­duc­ing bad choles­terol, broc­coli’s B vits help reg­u­late the amino acid ho­mo­cys­teine, which, ac­cord­ing to Har­vard Uni, builds up af­ter eat­ing ex­ces­sive amounts of red meat and in­creases your risk of coro­nary artery dis­ease. 2/ Pour over the tahini and mo­lasses. Made from se­same seeds, plant lig­nans in tahini im­prove blood lipid pro­files, re­bal­anc­ing your choles­terol. 3/ To fin­ish, sprin­kle over the blood pres­sure-low­er­ing pome­gran­ate seeds and nuts. It’s the tasti­est way to top up your dish’s health cre­den­tials. With thanks to Smokestak
