Broccoli really is one of nature’s superfoods, and I just love it! We have it often in our house because of all the benefits it provides.
When it comes to supporting the immune system, broccoli has good levels of antioxidants to help fight disease.
Packed with vitamin C, which is arguably the most important nutrient for immune function as well as all the vitamin K you’ll need in a day, and good levels of folate, vitamin A, potassium, phosphorous and selenium

1 Medium potato, peeled and chopped
1 Medium onion, chopped
2 Cloves of garlic, crushed
