Re: Spicing Up Broccoli Boosts Its Cancer-Fighting Power
Thanks! I'm not sure I love the idea of 'spicier' broccoli, but the article says that broccoli sprouts taste like radishes. I like the sound of that!
And upon reading further, the article says sprouts may have more cancer fighting properties than the mature vegetable. Fascinating!
Honestly, until today, I had never even heard of broccoli sprouts. You can be sure I'll be looking for them when next I visit my organic grocer!
