29 Delicious Paleo Broccoli Recipes You Need to Try

Okay, so we all know about broccoli, and that it’s a healthy vegetable. It seems people either love it or hate it, but broccoli really has so many great qualities. For starters, broccoli is full of fiber, great for keeping a healthy digestive tract. It’s also a good source of Folate, and high in Vitamin C, K, and Potassium.

What I love about broccoli, though, besides its health benefits, is how many different ways you can incorporate it into your healthy paleo meals. Here are 29 different, delicious paleo broccoli recipes for you to try. Let me know how you like them! If you have another favorite, share them with us in the comments section!!


Can You Eat Raw Broccoli?

Yes! Broccoli can be eaten raw. Simply wash it with fresh running water, pat dry and use a sharp knife to cut the broccoli florets from the main stem. 
Most people will be able to eat raw broccoli without any digestive issues, however, because it is a cruciferous vegetable, if you find that you have digestive upset after eating raw or lightly cooked broccoli, you should stick to eating steamed or roasted broccoli.

How To Make Brocolli Taste Better?

I personally love steamed or roasted broccoli with a delicious french salad dressing or a simple green dressing. 
You may also try steamed broccoli with a teaspoon (or more) or butter, olive oil or lemon juice. These really bring out the freshness and flavor of the broccoli. Don’t forget to add a little sale and pepper!

Of course, all of these paleo broccoli dishes are delicious. Let me know which ones you try!
