We don’t have that many fancy kitchen appliances, mainly because we can’t fit anything more into our small kitchen. One that we do have and that we really use is our juice machine. It doesn’t seem to matter what we put into it, everything that comes out tastes divine. Therefore we decided to start pushing its limits: Broccoli is a great vegetable in food, but how can we make a good juice out of it?
We added orange, apple, kiwi and ginger and it actually wasn’t half bad. And if you think of all it contains it’s really a bomb; Broccoli is rich in iron, and for absorbing iron into your body you need vitamin C, which you get from the kiwi and orange. Ginger is good for a million different reasons. Luise always adds linseed or almond oil as well because it’s good for the skin and the stomach (but I like it better without …).
1 handful of broccoli
2 cm fresh ginger
2 tbsp linseed oil
Put all the ingredients in a juice machine, pour it in a glass, add oil and ice cubes and stir. Enjoy with fresh mint leaves!
