Cashew nut curry with halloumi and broccoli (vegetarian)

I always felt like a right hypocrite when I tried to make Marek to eat broccoli,telling him eat up, it’s yummy,  because I’m not a big fan of this super healthy vegetable myself, neither is Tomas. I keep looking for recipes that could turn us into broccoli lovers because I don’t want us to miss on health benefits provided by broccoli, but nothing really worked for me until I found this curry recipe. I’m massive curry fan and curry is something I always enjoy no matter what kind of curry it is.

This particular dish contains  my ultimate love…halloumi cheese and ultimate hate…broccoli. I couldn’t wait to try this combination to see whether I like it or not. Well, seeing this recipe here I think you’ve already guessed… We loved it! It’s absolutely beautiful. What a great combination of flavours and textures. I’ve tested this dish on various friends and they all really liked it too. This certainly changed my view on broccoli, because it could be tasty it all depends on recipe and preparation.

And what’s so special about broccoli?? Broccoli contains strong anti-carcinogenic compounds and  is a very good detoxifier.  Thanks to expert antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamin-C, as well as other helpers like vitamin B complex and vitamin E,broccoli makes your skin glowing and young.High in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids, important for heart and bone health, full of vitamins vital for maintaining  good immunity, broccoli is truly universal vegetable and shouldn’t be missing on our plate.
