If you’re looking for delicious ways to bring more nutrition to the dinner table, it’s hard to beat broccoli. Broccoli is on most top 10 lists of superfoods, and packs a lot of nutrients in each bite.

“Easily incorporated into a variety of dishes, broccoli offers a great way for busy families to eat healthy on a daily basis,” says Rachel Brandeis, registered dietitian.

For an extra nutrient boost, try these recipes made with Eat Smart Beneforté broccoli. “Beneforté broccoli provides more phytonutrient glucoraphanin, which naturally strengthens your antioxidant enzyme levels to help maintain the antioxidant activity of vitamins A, C and E in your body. These vitamins protect your body from potentially damaging free radicals and environmental stresses,” says Brandeis.

Beneforté broccoli is available in the packaged produce section of grocery stores. Find out more at
