Asparagus, Tenderstem Broccoli & Green Bean Salad GF SCD

Tenderstem broccoli or baby broccoli is one of the sweetest of Spring vegetables. A cross between broccoli and Chinese kale, it was first cultivated in Japan using traditional plant breeding techniques. Nutritionally, it's a great source of vitamins A, C and K as well as calcium and its tender stem is very similar in texture to asparagus.

Cucumber, Bean, Mint & Apple Salad with Roasted Hazelnuts GF SCD

The weather's getting warmer, at last! I love salad, any time, any day but in the winter months we don't tend to eat as many mainly because some of us want something hot. Eating out, my favourite salads are at the Wholefoods Market cafe in London which we rarely visit but when we do it's a real treat. All the ingredients are listed and there's a wide choice but I tend to overfill my box and end up paying a fortune!
